THE SCENT OF THE FLOWER IS CARRIED BY THE WIND, ONLY GOING WHERE THE WIND BLOWS, BUT YOUR VIRTUE RADIATES IN ALL DIRECTIONS, TOUCHING EVERYTHING.
Windy run yesterday on Mission peak.

"Rash decisions or actions undertaken without forethought could result in a dead-end. Don’t just blindly forge ahead. Re-examine how you have dealt with situations in the past, they may not be the way to deal with things now. Perhaps new thinking, or a new way of doing things, is what is called for now. In spite of everything you will learn from your experience and shake off those blocks or obstacles. Sometimes you need more perspective so stand back and take a second look. © Stephen Haynes"

You are so fortunate to live close to Mission Peak. I wish I was more of a runner back when I used to live in Fremont. I would've been running those trails all the time. But now I can only daydream about it. ho hum, woe is me.

Hey GB-
Funny how life goes. I lived in Fremont almost all my life. It wasn't until 98 when I summited Mission Peak the first time. I have been to the top well over 2,000 times :)
GB you have to run the Ohlone 50k it starts in Fremont and finishes in Del Valle you would love it!

Hey Catra,

I like the quote at the start of this post. Seems timely some how.

We just had a big ole ice storm in missouri that completely distroyed the trails. Time to trade bikes and running shoes for chainsaws for the rest of the winter I guess.

Happy trails!
