I was pretty happy when I got there and it was a beautiful afternoon!!
On Friday, I got up early and put on my new road running shoes and took a run around town at sunrise. I haven't owned any in 4 years and let me tell you, I felt like a light, fast, speedy-speedster with those puppies on. WOW!! I ran into Mike along the way and he told me to go get some dirt on them.
Saturday morning I was excited to be joined by Hugh and a few friends, including Don, Catherine and Myron. Let's not forget the puppy dogs-all 5 of them!!

We mostly enjoyed a run on pretty dry trails, until we climbed up to the viewpoint. On the climb up the snow got deeper, and we got to work a little bit harder to earn our view!
Hugh's pictures are here.
On Sunday morning, we awoke to one of those picture perfect blue sky days. Keith was supposed to take the day off, but hey-it was too gorgeous a day to stay at home. We had to get out! The boy joined me for an hour up Tunnel Mountain and then I headed off on the trail for another 1.5hours of quality Leslie time.

The trails are remarkably dry for late November. We escaped November with no real winter weather! The ski hills opened last weekend while we were in California, but I think we will wait another week or so until there is more snow. Maybe next weekend, we will get out the skis??? In the mean time, I am enjoying the dry trails....
More photos here.
**And finally, all of my photos from our holiday in Yosemite and the Marin Headlands, as well as Race Day photos from Stinson Beach. The fine folks at Pacific Coast Trail Runs put some of my pictures up on their promo sight as well!!**
