Vlog #10 – Thunder Run!

It took me a little while to finish the music for this one, and I’m still not quite happy with it. But here it is. It was a scary run at the end and an experience I won’t forget soon. I have a strong love/hate feeling about runs like this. It is so much more fun to run in uncommon circumstances, but it also scared the hell out of me more than I expected and more than I should have been. In the end, I’m glad I did it.

Vlog #9 – Two Summits

I was hoping for a thunderstorm and some rain. I didn’t time that right, but I did have an awesome run through a beautiful forest. I reached the highest peak in Ventura Country, and I got an extra surprise peak out of the deal! Check it out.

Vlog #8 – Too Many Tarantulas

So this thing is turning into a vlog. I’m trying to post one video per week. It has been fun writing music and learning more about Final Cut Pro.

This week, I head up a trail in Brea, CA. I bet you can’t guess what I saw up there.

Without Moon or Headlamp

This was a late-afternoon run into the dark at Johnson Ranch in San Luis Obispo. I had no headlamp, and there was no moon. It was very dark. But that’s part of the fun. Check it out!

Aggressive Coyote Encounter

Today, the two dogs and I went for a run at Pt. Sal just outside of Santa Maria, CA. On the way down the hill, we had an encounter with a coyote. Luckily, everyone is fine. You can see and hear about it here.

20 With a Snake and a Cat

This was a tough one for me. Well, actually, it was easy until about mile 15. Then it became exponentially more difficult each mile. The good news is that I tried to talk myself into a shorter run more than once, but I declined my own request every time. That’s the way it had to be. I just had to cover the distance by running or walking, but I was able to run a lot of it. I met a big gopher snake and a bobcat on the route, which was interesting. I believe that is only the second time I have ever seen a bobcat at Rice Ranch Park. I also ran into a nice 1 year old German Shepherd, but he was not as friendly as ours. It was 10:15pm when I finished, but I covered the distance without compromises. The tough ones are great.
