They are so lucky!
I spent a week working in northern California. I did some runs before work on most days I was there. They are so incredibly lucky over there. I was running without gloves, a buff or my headband even at 5am. The trails I found on my last day were dry and did not leave me muddy. It was very hard to believe this was December!
I did a brief write up here: http://ninjakhan.co.uk/2012/12/11/a-week-in-california/
Check out the panoramic shot at the bottom of the post - there is a picture but also a 3d interactive thingy.
Corr! Northern California looks like Dartmoor/Wales/Scotland but without the rain/snow!
I know this was a busines trip, but it always makes me laugh when people seem bemused that I want to run when I'm on holiday, as if I'm taking work with me or something. I remember a beautiful run I had a little further south than this, around San Franscisco Bay. Best pre-breakfast run ever.
I love running when I go away business or holiday (apart from Crete perhaps which was a bit hot even at 6am).
I also like muddy runs, but maybe thats just me.
New Zealand one year ago.
Freezing bollocks off now. Where's that wine? I'm going to drown myself!
Wow, that picture has just made me really jealous! I love running abroad. Favourite still New York, worst was probably Rwanda - the heat and altitude really got to me, but I expect if I'd have had longer to adapt that would have been my favourite, because the trails are beautiful... just very hard work!
