This morning I decided to run along the marsh. It was around 9AM when I started my run. The usual out and back route. I started by the Bahia gate and ran the first rolling 3/4 miles. Then I decided to run the old route that was basically abandoned after a new trail was built parallel to the old one but with some rolling hills. This old trail goes along the water and offers a great view of so many birds species. It was a sunny day and the pelicans, egrets, swans and mallards were all there near to the edge of the trail. I hit the marsh and ran around it instead of turn around and run back to the start. It is only about 11/4 mile of very flat terrain. I followed the same route back to the start. My legs were a little tired. The total run time was about 42 minutes.
At 4:03PM I started my second run. I ran the usual 1.3 miles loop and after that I headed up to the hills. There is a long steep climb of about 2.5 miles. It goes up and up. No much rest for your legs. But when you hit the top you have some incredible views of the ocean and the bay. The fire road levels a little and then the downhill starts. It is about 1.5 miles of downhill running until you hit the fire road bellow that is partly paved. I ran for about 3/4 miles until I pass the parking a lot and head down for 3/4 miles to the starting point. Total run time: 68 minutes.
