Running 1:00:36 [3] 5.6 mi (10:49 / mi) +300m 9:17 / mi
shoes: Brooks Running 20

Running with Sam and Presto at Briones! Gorgeous! Briones is super nice when the grass is all green :-). Today was a good day for animal sightings. Aside from the usual cows, we saw a herd of goats, a pair of coyotes (maybe juveniles?), a red tailed hawk, a lizard, 2 snakes (one really big one!), and several turkeys.

Towards the end, Sam pealed off to take a shorter route home, and Presto and I continued to the end of the loop. Presto and I hit a cow traffic jam where a bunch of cows decided to sleep on the trail. They had calves with them, and Presto is overly interested in cows, so we went off-trail to sort of sneak around the cows. The cows were not impressed and started snorting at us, which Presto apparently could care less about because he decided right in front of the cows would be the best place for a bathroom stop. I was a bit concerned about getting mauled by a cow, which seems like an ignominious way to die, but luckily the cows were never worried enough to actually try to do anything to us.

Otherwise, the run felt good, and I was glad to be out and about in the sun!

Running 31:44 [3] 3.5 mi (9:04 / mi)
shoes: Brooks Running 20

Running with Sam and Presto after lab! I got out of lab a bit later than I'd planned today, but that meant I got to run right at sunset, which was nice. Sam's knee is bothering him, so he only ran with us for the first 5 or 6 minutes before turning around. Presto was quite displeased when we went a different direction than Sam, and dragged the rest of the way up the hill. He decided it would be ok to go a normal speed on the downhill, though :-). The view of the sunset across the Bay from the top of the hill was gorgeous. Fog was coming in through the Golden Gate and just the tops of the bridge suspension supports were showing. And the sun was setting just over Mount Tam. Really nice evening!

Running 31:35 [3] 3.5 mi (9:01 / mi)
shoes: Brooks Running 20

Running with Presto after lab! This was nice, if a bit slow. Presto was also feeling a bit slow today, so we were dragging pretty badly up the hill. I guess we were both still a bit tired on the first part of the downhill, but we sped up as we continued on down and were both feeling pretty good by the time we were finishing up. Nice to get a good run in while it's still light out!

Running 58:40 [3] 6.0 mi (9:47 / mi) +400m 8:06 / mi
shoes: Brooks Running 20

Running with Sam and Presto at Tilden Park! I think this was the prettiest I've ever seen Tilden. The hills were green and covered in flowers and the views out to San Francisco and Briones were fantastic. We ran from the Quarry Trailhead to Volmer Peak, down to South Park Drive, and then back to the Quarry Trailhead. The trails had a few days to dry out since the last rain, so I didn't even lose a shoe! Running felt decent, especially the downhills. Presto was super excited to be out, so he was dashing around sniffing things, and it was generally perfect running weather - 50s and sunny. There was a trail race going on at Tilden at the same time, so we got to spectate that while running past them as well, which was fun. Super nice run!

Stretching 10:00 [3]

Normal stretching after scurrying over to meet Tori and Carlo for Thai Sunday Brunch, which was even more crazy than usual because it was Thai New Year today. Yum!
