Because yesterday was a Reflection Day, this is a long weekend. But because I didn’t have anything planned, I was stuck at home today.
That’s OK, though. There’s no fire, there’s no smoke, and even with the pandemic still going on, I can go run.
So today, I ran up to Round Top, the highest point in the Sibley Volcanic Regional Preserve. Despite having gone up Sibley many times (the last time being a kickoff for “training” coworkers for Yosemite/Half Dome), I’ve never gone up to this peak.
In short, there wasn’t anything particularly special about this peak. Actually, there wasn’t even much of a view, given all the radio equipment and power lines up there. But I got to see some PG&E workers work on a power transmission tower.
The return trip was also not particularly special either. But I rarely run through the Huckleberry Botanic Regional Preserve, so doing so (and doing so southbound) was a treat. Coming down Shepherd Canyon was also fun as usual. I even made a wrong turn (unintentionally) and saw a house super decked out for Halloween.
Because I was so pooped after this run, all I could do afterward was take a nap. I did manage to wake up on time to do some yin yoga.
