When I lived in Arizona I ran along the canal trail even in the blazing sun. In San Francisco I ran a beautiful trail called Lands end that ran along cliffs plunging into the ocean and overlooking the Golden Gate Bridge, in the East Bay I ran along a local Hercules path and then ended on the Bay Trail that ran alongside the San Francisco Bay. When we move into our permanent apartment in Ebikon (just outside of Lucerne) there is a lovely lake called "the Red Lake" that I will run (It was very much a deciding factor in moving to this apartment.
Yesterday I enjoyed running along Lake Lucerne for the second time, and the scenery was quite spectacular.
I am planning to run my third 1/2 marathon right here in Lucern. Wish me luck! It's going to be a fast ramp-up from my current 6 miles, but I am excited. After this training, then a new CrossFit gym will open in Lucern!!! Yay and my cross-fit hiatus will be ended :) Looking forward to so many new things.
On another note Juliet and I shared italian pizza yesterday that was wonderful! However, I have to say living in the Bay Area, I was sooo spoiled with the good eats, because all the food here is on par with SF.
I took these two pictures while running (excuse for a break)
Here are a couple pictures of Juliet at the pizzeria (pizza had not yet arrived) and the swans again (you will probably end up seeing many, many swan pictures because they are so regal and beautiful)
