I'm calling this run a 'road' run and the ride a 'road' ride only because I spent the majority of my time on pavement during each but I also went on some GREAT trails during both. Gotta love mixing it up!
This morning I ran down to Seward Park and then ran on a bunch of trails IN the park. I gotta say, there are some pretty technical trails here and some steep ass climbs...! Very cool. Then I ran home.
ASIDE - it seems like I can't head down Lake WA Blvd without at least one parking lot (sometimes more) containing a car full of people hotboxing it. I have smelled it EVERY time I run down here.
After a snack I hopped on my mountain bike and rode over to my friend Tony Callen's house and we did an urban MTB loop that he has pieced together. We went on dirt trails on Queen Anne Hill, two in Interlaken and one in the Arboretum. Did I mention that we also rode a sweet boardwalk feature in the I-5 Colonnade? Nice!
The fact that I was able to do both the run and the ride in shorts and short sleeves didn't suck either.
