I have designated Saturday as my long run day.
|Wearing my happy tye dye shirt =)|
Any So Cal runners ever do this/ are you signed up? The website claims it's "one of America's most picturesque and challenging runs". And it's a little intimidating because of the "challenging climb to the summit of Torrey Pines".
Uh, I don't know about you, but I have a love/hate relationship with hills. Emphasis on the hate.
Since I'm contemplating this 1/2 marathon, I thought it would be appropriate to map out a run lots of hills...oh yea//ugh.

Then 5 miles of this
It was gorgeous out. Too bad these pics can't convey it!
Love the mountain in the background.
I forgot my watch in the car, so I took along my clunky cell phone so I could see what time I started and what time I ended. Real high tech, I know. Since I had it, I figured I'd snap some pics.
|These signs are funny looking. We get the point!|
After all that activity I was starved. So I made the fastest lunch I could think of.
|Couldn't wait to take a bite!|
And then I finally used my mystery gift. Any guesses?
JACK LA LANNE JUICER!!!
Thanks Mom, Alli, & Matthew<3
I spent the rest of my day cleaning, juicing, & cooking.

Would you sign up for this 1/2 marathon? I'm on the fence!
Do you incorporate hills into your training? Only outdoors. I don't think I could handle running on an incline on the treadmill.
