It was an awesome run today. 28 miles, 6071 ft of climb, total run time 4:48. Amazingly this is a good 30+ minutes faster than any of my 28 mile workouts over the last three years. I chalk this up to core strength training- an unanticipated benefit of the fracture rehabilitation.

Cruising past the Idlehour trail junction I soon dropped into mist for the last few mies down into Altadena. Just beautiful.
