Running in Monterey
At the turnaround point of my Monterey Peninsula run.
Last week while on a business trip to Monterey, CA I got a chance to get a couple of runs in on the Monterey Peninsula Trail. I was staying on Wave St. along Cannery Row so the trail was a half block from the hotel - basically right across the street.
Running west, the cement trail turns to asphalt and dirt, then entirely dirt trail - following the shoreline.
On my first run, I went 2.5 miles in this direction before turning around for my return and took a few pictures and a video along the way.
My second run was in the easterly direction toward Fisherman's Wharf - less trail and more cement but interesting sights anyway!
The temperatures were quite cool (almost cold) with temps in the mid to upper 50s and breezy. It felt great in my short sleeves while running - but once I stopped running I had to quickly get inside and warm up.
After my second run, I quickly drove over to the other side of the peninsula to catch a beautiful CA sunset!
It is good to be home, but I will certainly miss running along the beach!
