A few pictures from our run/hike into Hondo Canyon which is on the Backbone Trail in the Santa Monica Mountains. I was on my own mostly and had a great time listening to my music and rocking the downhill. The trail was a lot more shady than I expected and beautiful even with all the poison oak. I managed to stay clear but it was everywhere in certain sections. Most of our runs are out and back and I usually turn around when I see Robb heading back as I don’t want to keep him waiting too long but I knew I had a little more time so I decided to make my way to Old Topagna. On the way back up I was wishing I had turned around sooner but I knew I needed this training run/hike with the Bulldog 25k coming up this Saturday. I haven’t been doing a lot of mid-week running and I’m realizing it’s catching up. So I made it all the way back UP safe and then hubby and I met Shannon for a nice brunch. Just a lovely morning…a tough run…but then…great company, nice weather and good food. Doesn’t get much better!
