The Beast and I met up for our weekly run. We headed out on the Canal Trail to the Iron Horse and headed towards down town Walnut Creek. We took a last minute detour through town just to change things up a bit. It was still early for WC and there weren't many people out. The streets were super clean, tons of flower planters full of pretty flowers, and music flowing from the buildings out into the street. It was a bit like an early entry morning at Disneyland.
Our usual 5 miles ended up being 6.3. After chatting for a while afterwards, I had about 30 minutes to kill before I needed to pick up Myles from school.
As much as I enjoyed our morning run past Neiman Marcus and Tiffany's.....I knew just how I wanted to spend that 30 minutes......
I headed for the hills a few blocks away from the school. I knew I had enough time to head straight up the main hill.
|Those cracks were full of lizards, going up it was entertaining, but running down I had to just not look because if I tried to adjust my landing every time I saw one I would have gotten hurt. Sorry little lizards!|
|Those bumpy hills are Shell Ridge in Walnut Creek. We mention it here on the blog fairly often as a hike we do with the kids and they see tons of frogs. There's a few ponds in those hills.|
Two runs in one morning!! I had a blast with the Beast, and an equal amount of fun running down that hill!!
