I have a rare week off in March and since Will isn’t off, I decided that I’d use the week to go train somewhere other than Burlington. I initially looked at heading to western North Carolina or to Flagstaff, but by the time I found flights, rental car and housing, the trip was getting to be ridiculously expensive. Imagine my surprise, then, when going to San Diego ended up being a totally affordable flight AND a chance to visit my sister for a week.
My sister lives on the BEAUTIFUL island of Coronado which boasts the Silver Strand Bikeway, a 7 mile bike path that runs along the ocean. When I was out there last, I did most of my runs out here and in March, I plan to do my tempo runs and afternoon runs here. I’m also excited to explore other places around the San Diego area both to work on my trail running and general fitness.
In particular, I’m excited to get to Lake Hodges Trail, Miramar Reservoir and of course, Balboa Park. If I can get out there, I’d also love to run out at Mount Laguna which sits at almost 6000 feet and sounds like a beautiful place to get a couple of hours of hard work in.
What’s your favorite place to run in San Diego? Anywhere in the area I shouldn’t miss?
