A Fall Creek Runners High
A frosty morning to try a new trail - at Fall Creek State Park. I wanted to test my mettle after a long 60 mile frosty ride yesterday, with a 9 mile run today - again in prep for a Yosemite ski backpack next weekend. I'm gratified it all went very well. Awesomel scenery and very quiet trails. I ran to the tippy top of the Park on the Truck Trail, then back down to the Big Ben trail, to Fall Creek, and then miles of beautiful creekside running back to the start. No issues with my usual soft spots - again thanks (I assume) to the diligent scar tissue breakup work with the roller.
I'm the astronomy program chair at Cabrillo College near Santa Cruz, CA. An astronomy researcher for 30 years, an avid astrophotographer, nature photographer, and triathlete for just as long. I am also a trader in equities. I find a deep need to find, appreciate, and celebrate beauty in all its forms, and to understand myself and the World, and to share that understanding with my students and friends.
