My second run since Pinhoti was a nice short trail run in Fremont, California at the Coyote Hills Regional Park on the Bayview Trail (The picture below was taken from the parking lot at the trailhead).


Because I was getting to the park late in the day, the time I could spend at the park was limited as they would close the gates at 6PM. In addition, my calculations of the trail distances were way off, so it only added up to a 5K loop. On a positive note, I didn't have to venture out on my own, as a friend and colleague of mine from Ireland, Mike joined me on my run. Checking out the park map prior to arriving, I expected it to be a flat course running through the marsh. Instead, the trail was nestled at the base of rolling hills, leading us along the bayfront at about 50 feet above the waterline. The views were fantastic, with the sun slowly disappearing and the moon rising behind the hills. This was just the right type of run to test my knee and thankfully, it held up just fine. As soon as the sun went down, the temperatures went down as well. Hopefully, I can get another fun training run in while in California.
