This past weekend my husband and I took a spur-of-the-moment trip to Mammoth Lakes, CA. We literally got online on Wednesday, booked a condo and checked in the very next day. It was glorious to spend a few days away, truly relaxing.
We got to hike to beautiful places like this:
I got to run at altitude, in a place where I could run at 9:00 AM when the sun was out and I didn’t end up with heat exhaustion. The daytime highs weren’t even as hot as our overnight lows are at this time of year! I haven’t been taking self-portraits the past couple months, so I guess my whole documenting the year of 2010 in running is no longer happening. But I did take pics on this trip!
I kept my eyes open but I didn’t spot any elite runners cruising around the area… but I did pass a lady running in the opposite direction of me… she was about 65ish and was really flying. That’s how I want to be!
We’re already planning to return, it’s such a beautiful area and so relaxing. I posted it on Twitter and Facebook, but I’ll repeat it…. Mountain air is good for my soul!
