"If you can fill the unforgiving minute with 60 seconds worth of distance, run, yours is the earth and everything that's in it, and -- which is more --you'll be a man, my son."Rudyard Kipling
We walked and ran this morning on the Caspar Logging Roads. John's pictures, though not on the Logging Roads, were all taken nearby. Thank you, John!
I've been off for the past 5 weeks and in those 5 weeks, I seem to have forgotten how to do most everything I used to master easily. Trouble opening and closing programs, using the tv remote, turning off my alarm clock, and I forgot to check the temperature upon arriving at our meeting place. I think it was about 62 degrees and the air was thick and warm, much like Iowa a couple of weeks back.
It was nice to have a good turnout: Sarah, Michael, Cheryl N., Neil, Nancy B., Rick, Nancy T., Roger, Cheryl, John, Bob, Laura, Melissa, Nichole, Katie, Zelda, Fay, Charlene, Cindy, Jim, Geri, Toni, Joe, Shari, Peter, Nancy and Tom (27).
Those of us that started out this morning on the downhill road (600) found a lot of loose rock on the surface from the recent culvert replacement work. Hopefully, a little rain and some traffic will pack it down. I'm not sure how the uphill road (500) was but this remains a good venue because of the options it offers.
Next week's run/walk location also offers many options. It is a beautiful walk or run along the beach or the logging road. There's Laguna Point and Ten Mile Dunes, your choice, it's all very pretty! The tide will be about 2.5 feet, which leaves enough firm sand exposed, for those that choose to beach run or walk.
NEXT SUNDAY, OCT. 26TH @ 8:00 A.M.: WARD AVENUE, see "Our Routes" above.
EVERY TUESDAY @ 7:00 A.M.: RUSSIAN GULCH STATE PARK, beginning on Point Cabrillo Drive, 1/10 of a mile north of its south end.
EVERY THURSDAY @ 7:00 A.M.: VAN DAMME STATE PARK, beginning at the beach.
