Two things that I am looking forward to for this summer… hiking and swimming!
This afternoon, I met up with two beautiful girls for a hike at Rancho San Antonio (Sarah and Susan):
If you can’t tell, it was extremely hot and sunny out, but we were sure to put on a bunch of sunblock and bring lots of water.
We went up along the PG&E Trail, which follows along the power lines up the mountain:
This trail is nice because it is not all in the open. There are segments with a good amount of shade and a cool breeze.
We made it up three miles before it was time to turn around (considering time constraints… plus I was mad hungry and I didn’t know it, haha).
6.0 miles total, with a strong running finish at the end 😉
We ate a late lunch at Freebirds:
We it was SO fun to have hike with these girls.
We’re already planning on making the Friday hike a regular thing. I love hiking in the summer, and hope to get them to transition little by little to trail running, too (shhh, don’t tell them, HEHEHE).
Like I mentioned, I hope to do some open water swimming soon.
This pretty much makes it official:
My wetsuit has arrived.
Nervous, but super excited to get into the open water for a swim. I still need to build my confidence in the pool though. It’s going to be a fun summer 🙂
What are your favorite summer-time activities? [I always get into trail running during the summer].
What do you prefer: hats or sunglasses?
