i like this like trail a lot and the mild weather. Cool species of birds and trees out here. Sacramento has a serious homelessness problem though with dozens of people living in filthy tents by the river.

kind of wish I were running the marathon as I feel great but then I remember how trashed my body and mind become after a marathon. A month plus to recover? No thanks

I am out in Sacramento to watch Jenn run the marathon tomorrow. This year CIM had a 5k the day before so I figured I might as well run it. Very slow and slippery course but I won, so that's a good way to end my season.

Seriously, who designed this monstrosity of a course? 23 turns. The guy in the lead about a half mile in wipes out on the first turn which involved wet leaves and mud. Of course then I had to slow down at each turns so I wouldn’t wipe out. Fun but terrible course
