Newport Beach trail run from the Marriott villas to Crystal cove beach state park down to the waters edge and about 5 miles of beach running.  Not a bad place to be.  Beach sweat is nice and salty.  Time for seaside donuts.

repeat run of 2 days ago with the myriad of seabirds along the water's edge of crystal cove state park here in Newport.  Felt happy that at the end of the 3.5 sand miles there is a fantastic restroom.  Clean, big and individual rooms.  Hot though...coming out of there felt like coming out of a sauna.  I think I am up to 14 miles for the week and 14 donuts so pretty good so far.

Awesome day with Oreo up at White Pine.  Slight wonderful chill in the air.  He woke me up this morning while I was literally having a dream about running...weird.  I was dizzy and enjoying some of the lightening white vision squiggles due to elevation of the trail  and being 42% caffeine and donut substrate at the current moment.  

Fun stuff...maybe motivating me to try to get out of the pain cave.  I love the views of this trail and the country it covers.  Just what I needed.

Road miles to Cottonwood offices and back...didnt have time to drive to the mountains.  Nice hot run though and a sweaty good time.  I still feel like I am in slow motion, but slow motion better than no motion I would say.

Will try and get in mountain on Sat...

Neighborhood to 39th Loop...For some Reason my Hamstrings are crazysauce sore.  Havent done anything fun to deserve that...maybe just the 3 hours of weed pulling the other day.  Trying to become a runner again.

Inspired by Oreo 13 up Snowbasin, I hauled my sorry butt up to the Dog Lake-Desolation Lake Loop.  Perfect weather about 68 at the start.  Lots of people because of Saturday but no bikers.  The views around Desolation lake are great.  I was flagging a bit on energy the last 6 of this but just happy to be out in the mountains, eating my almonds and rice cakes, so glad Ive finally decided Gu just no good for me...  Cool times... Not fast times as it was 2:31 and about 2750 vertical...but cool times for sure

Wheelers loop with Oreo.  Awesome trail with only one other soul.   Was hoping to see the wild turkeys, but to no avail. Grinder up to Green Pond but totally sweet downhill.  Beautiful temperature at about 58 to 60 degrees.  Drove up at 6 am thinking I would be back in Slc by 930 but car broke down on I-15 and had to get towed.  Home at noon.  Highs and Lows.  Cool run.
