Hills, trails, and stairs
Yes, San Francisco is known for its hills, but I think it should also be famous--or infamous--for its stairs. I thoroughly enjoyed running from Golden Gate Park, up past Cliff House, through Lands End, and into Sea Cliff. Jess and I ran 7.4 miles up hills, up and down stairs, through luxurious neighborhoods, and, to ensure that our quads got good and sore, back down a few hills.
We had a navigational challenge and decided that rock climbing or ocean swimming were not safe options, and that meant that we needed to backtrack--or uptrack--to get back to Sea Cliff and Lincoln Park. All in all, a fantastic weekend run!
