Tour of Diablo

To continue with my birthday celebrations, I tricked talked my fellow trail adventurers Jojo and Jessica into exploring my favorite Bay Area mountain with me.  Kind of a “it’s my birthday and we will run where I want to” kid of thing.  Both girls had been to the summit with me on separate occasions, but […]

Above the Clouds

After Friday’s 21 miler, I was pretty tired, but I was very much looking forward to the long standing plans I had with Jojo to run Diablo Saturday.  If you have been reading this blog for any amount of time, you know that Jojo is my trail twin and we do a lot of long […]

Back in February, I took my friend Kerry to the top of Mt. Diablo as part of her Bay Area Bucket list.  I hadn’t been back to the summit since that day, mostly because I was training for AR50, then recovering from it.  It’s a pretty tough run, so I never wanted to risk being […]

One Fear Down: Biking up Mt. Diablo

Yesterday afternoon after a morning long run cut short, an early afternoon of errands, and a desperate late lunch, Chris and I went out for a bike ride. We had debated on going for a while, but eventually just decided to go.  I got my cycling clothes on, filled up our bottles, loaded my shirt […]

Friday Favorites: Diablo Date Nights

Chris and I are both leading very busy lives right now and our schedules are often conflicted.  He has been avoiding running on roads for a while now since he is still battling a foot injury, but somewhere in the last month I talked him into running trails with me and it’s been so so […]

Mt. Diablo

In keeping with the theme of my funemployment, which was wanting to do things I haven’t done before, Chris and I decided to head up Mt. Diablo Monday morning for my last hurrah before becoming a working person again.  I stare at this mountain all the time and have always wanted to go running there.  […]
