With apologies to those in colder locales ( guys/gals can laugh all the way to the bank when it comes mortgage payment time), it was ridiculously nice here this weekend!  Highs in the low-mid 70s both days.  And as it was a rest week, I took full advantage in just sucking it up.  Took my girl for long hikes out at Garin Park.  In case you've forgotten, Garin looks something like this:

Which results in faces that look like this:

Oh, and did I mention that Garin is just a 5 minute drive from my house.  Yes, *very* fortunate indeed. These pics were actually taken last weekend. We've truly struck the jackpot lately in the January weather lottery.

This morning, I met Jo Lynn at her house and we picked up a friend of hers and all set out for the Pacific Coast Trail Run 9k in Pacifica.  Hello, again, gorgeous weather.  JL is coming back from having had foot surgery late last year, and did fan-freaking-tastic. 

It was so much fun hiking our butts up (and up....and up....)the hills, running down the hills, and pretty much non-stop, easy going chatter.  Fulfilled my training instructions to a T:  "Relax, social, enjoyable run".  Relax....check. Social....double check.  Fun.....yes ma'am!  I'll have pics for the run later (after JL posts hers and I steal's okay....she knows....I told her she was the official photographer).  Until then...Happy Trails!

See, I told you that first "climb" wasn't even the big one! LOL
It was a fun time, wasn't it? ;)

P.S. Pics are up.

Jealous of your weather. It was -25 yesterday morning. It has warmed up to a balmy -6 I think.

Awesome pictures!!!
