Just a quick post to share some photos from last Sunday’s run at Quicksilver park. I need to get used to those long hilly runs for Big Sur next year, and Quicksilver adds some trails into the mix: perfect!
Breakfast! Perfectly cloudy, with a chance of fog – up ahead and far, far away. Roughly a third into it, getting closer to the top. Hello, fog. It’s nice to breathe you in. Refreshing! At roughly 1660 ft elevation now. Quicksilver runners. Our turnaround point, five miles in. There is an amazing view beyond this table, but you can’t really see it. Thanks, Fog. But, as you can see, the sun is now peeking out from behind the clouds. On our way back, some initially confusing signage. Bikers and dog walkers: yield to hikers. Everyone, yield to horses. Where are the runners??? More than two miles of delicious downhill up ahead! Finally, we pick it up and do a couple of sub-9 min miles. And lookie here: the sun came out! And hello! Tiffany and I, agreeing that sometimes it’s worth to stop and pose for that perfect photo. Love it!
