In planning our vacation to Catalina Island, I simply knew I had to get in at least one run.
I packed for two. :-)
The weekend really went too fast don't they always? SO after the wedding with an open bar, I woke up Sunday morning determined to run off any hangover.
It was a bit of a struggle to crawl out of bed and change into my running clothes, but I did it. SO GLAD I DID!
It was a beautiful morning! There was a slight breeze; the weather was perfect.
I started out running along the ocean.
It's such a rare treat for me to run with the ocean by my side. And it was exhilarating. :)
But I also really wanted to attempt a little trail running on the island. I'd consulted a map, but it somehow took me nearly 2 miles to find this trail head.
I was super excited!
Until just before getting onto the actual trail, I saw this sign.
HIKING AND BICYCLE PERMITS REQUIRED.
Bummer. I'm a rule follower, so as much as I wanted to hit that trail, I turned around and stuck to the road.
Luckily for me, most of the uphill was behind me by the time I found that trail. And I was able to enjoy the fast downhill - enjoying the beauty around me.
Here are a few more pictures from my run.
I also discovered the panorama function on the camera on my phone.
Hope you've enjoyed my pictures and running with me on Catalina Island!
Jeff and I had also gone for a walk Saturday morning. Here are a couple more panoramas. Yeah, I really fell in love with this function on my phone!
Running after a night of drinking and an afternoon of scuba diving might not have been the best idea in hindsight, but it was still fun for me. Even though it completely wiped me out for the drive home.
Have you ever been to Catalina Island?
