A friend is someone who sees through you and still enjoys the view.
Awesome weekend of running. Ran 35 miles on Saturday. Julia started with me and ran around 9 miles with me then turned around she was tired and sore from a weight workout from the two days before.
I continued on and it was a beautiful day. Ran down to Ed Levin/Sandy wool lake It is and awesome place to run to. I forgot how much I like that area.
On the way out I saw tons of hang gliders at one point there was 10 in the air and at the highest launch point there were at least 15 waiting to go.
I was surprised I saw a lot of hikers out there, I ran into a group of 10.
I enjoyed the quite solitude and the alone time with myself to reflect on things to come ;-)
On a 9 hour run you have lots of time to think about life.
I really felt good most of the run, which is nice I didn't really have any low points which means I'm getting stronger and able to push harder ;-)
I ran Sunday with Mike and the weather was a totally different story. We started around 12:20 and it was pouring, we were both freezing our asses off by the time we were on the top of the peak. We decided a 3 hour run was good enough for the day.
There were actually a few people out there which makes me smile knowing we are not the only hard core people out there.
Next Saturday I am taking a few friends on a 40+mile run we will start at my house run to Ed Levin and back to my house then to Sunol and back . If anyone whats to run let me know you can make it shorter and just go to Ed Levin and back 22 miles ;-) or not do the whole thing and do 30 miles or even less.
Have a great day!!
