12 Deep On A Second Date

OK, it’s my second run on Garmin305. Still trying to figure out all the features available.

Today, I decided to run 10 miles and try a trail on the outermost west side of the San Fernando Valley in the Los Angeles area.

It’s been years since I’ve done dirt road and I got to admit it was very challenging. So I set out and did 12 miles instead of the 10 as planned. I felt good during the run. The scenery was beautiful. Wide open space,  hills and to my surprise a good number of runners, walkers and mountain bikers were a welcome sight. Did I mention there were 2 horse riders along the way. Beautiful horses and riders for sure. There were plenty of dogs as well.  There’s a little cold wind along the route which made the run better.

Notable Miles:

Mile 4.75 I tweaked my left ankle. I was worried for a while on the descent but stayed on course but nothing serious.

Mile 6.0 turn around. Water. Water. Water. There was a small creek ahead and so I decided to head back, it was only a few meters short of a full six mile.

Mile 8.85. A group of teenagers walking. A good size on a Saturday morning in the middle of Las Virgines trail. Good for them.

Mile 9.13. Two horse riders passed me by from behind. We have to share a very narrow (about 4-5 feet) trail. Beautiful horses and very tall (only because I’m small at 5-5″).

Mile 10.45. This is very embarrassing. Horse riders on a “call of nature”. Right there on the side doing her number as I was approaching on a very steep uphill. At least she’s turned around.  Smiled, said hi and continued.

Made it back for a full 12 miles.

No camera, I have my cell phone with me but low on battery (noticed that passed mile 3) . Can’t take any pix at all. This post would have been more interesting in colored pictures.

Oh well. I just did 12 (mile) deep into my second date with Garmin and I love it.

  1. Terrific work! This is the type of information that should be shared around the web. Shame on the search engines for not positioning this post higher!
