This, from Friday's beach run. I'm seeing more and more egrets on the beach, a welcome sight as they're very beautiful.

I try to run down to and along the beach as many days as I have time and training for. It always leaves me feeling spiritually better. This is from my beach run last weekend. A girl on the wharf above, framed by the glow of the setting sun.
Ferrell always likes to do a Half Marathon to celebrate his birthday, and this year we were lured in to the Redwood City Half on Oct 29, which promised miles and miles of off-road through the wetlands. Well, actually it was on city roads and then a lot on a bike trail which butted right up against the Hwy 101 freeway, with a coupl'a/three miles in the wetlands. But there were some nice dawn views of the peaceful marsh and reflections. I was at least gratified that my psoas let me run the whole race, albeit with a fair amount of pain near the end. I did 2:39:58, so just barely beat my goal of breaking 2:40. Slow, but better than it might have been. My psoas has been giving me off/on worse pain this year and something's gotta be done. I will head in for an Xray this coming week.
