Yesterday I was lucky enough to see the sunrise and the sunset the best way I know how… on a run of course!
The morning started off with a drive into the hills for some trail running! My running group from work decided to switch things up and I was so excited to get to see some new trails and get a change of scenery. We got to our starting location and it was pretty dark and very foggy, but soon enough the sun was peaking over the hills. It was such a beautiful morning out!
Since it had rained the day before it was very muddy out on the trails which made for some tough running. We made the best of it with a lot of laughs and some very muddy legs. 6.5 miles later we were back at the car covered in mud.
Amanda (who I met a couple of years ago at the SD Rock n Roll Marathon) had contacted me a while back telling me she was going to be in SF! So what do I do? Round up as many Bay Area Bloggers that I can to show her around the city.
We met up just after 6pm downtown. It was a perfect night in SF for a run. We started at the Ferry Building near the financial district and took her on a tour of the Embarcadero.
We took it easy taking in the sights and having great conversation. One direction was the huge full moon and the other side was the beautiful sunset. It was an amazing view either way you were looking.
We of course stopped a couple times for some photos.
We made our way along the water.
And climbed up a hill to be rewarded with this view. Actually we went up the hill specifically for this view. Doesn’t get much better than that.
As the sun fully set, 6 miles later we made our way back to the Ferry Building. The city was still bustling and it was still a perfect evening to be running.
Of course we stopped for food and more conversation after. Doesn’t get much better than that if you ask me! It was so fun to see Amanda again and I love that a blogger can come from across the country and fits right in.
Definitely a great day of runs!
