    Just for fun. I went on a light bike ride rather than my usual interval bursts. During the ride, I saw a peregrine falcon fly by a light moon, & then saw specks dancing in the rays of sunlight breaking through red-yellow leaves falling from trees ready for fall. it was great! then got stopped & had to turn around because of a cop with a big gun guarding route for Pres Obama...it was okay...everything I saw was very visually pleasant. Overall, I was very serene, and it felt good.

    While walking the lake today I spied three men with amazing physiques (one doing pull-ups, one biking, one canoeing) and three with great physiques (all running). I did not stare, but I closed my eyes and thought happy thoughts.

    I ran a trail half marathon last week. It was a bracing fall morning, crisp and clear, and all the trees beginning to turn orange and red. Part of the race went by a lake that was so still that it perfectly mirrored the sky that was still purple-pink from the recent sunrise.

    One time I went running at beach, on the sand. I saw a seal just sitting there at the waterline, just relaxing. I ran by slowly. Real close. It didn't even phase him. The seal just stared at me and watched me run by. icon_lol.gif

    I saw this hot dude doing yoga on the nude beach once.
    He went home with me that evening.

    Our Saturday morning boot camps at the bay were pretty invigorating. Not sure how a 1600 calorie burning workout could be quite defined as enjoyable though.

    I just got back from a weekend backpacking excursion in the Appalachian mountains. 2 days, 16 miles.

    The mountains were at peak fall foliage. Absolutely stunning

    The other day I raced a little yellow butterfly half way around the track, but I let it win.

    I was out jogging the other and got lost in thought just enjoying the unusual route I decided to take. I ended up stopping and sat underneath a huge tree over looking some small pond and listening to some bird sounds.

    It was very pleasant. All that scene needed now was a sexy hot man to jump out of the bushes, eye me and undress himself to show me his "nature" and I could've died a happy man :-)

    On Friday I rode with a biking group that does nocturnal rides every week here in Mexico City. I was bored at first because we were a large group and the pace was fairly slow and there were lots of stops, but then we cut across from Tlatelolco to San Cosme on a really steep overpass, riding in the bus lanes. The air was really cool and fresh and at the top of the bridge I had a view of the city from an angle I'd never seen before. It was pretty awesome.

    This is not the same angle but something like this, with the air really clear and the hills standing out:

    Just running out in the rain is pleasant for me. It could be the light massage of raindrops on my head, or the nice cooling effect of water dripping down my body.

    all my rides are awesome , that's the beauty of mountain biking.

    but it's hard to top the vista on Porcupine Rim Trail in Moab , Utah.
    i've been 3 times and it's still breathtaking.

    1. Yesterday I ran barefoot on the beach and it started raining...and then raining hard. It was such an exhilarating sensory experience to pound the sand barefoot while being pelted by rain drops! It helped that the temperature was mild--else I would have been miserable. By the end of mile three I was sprinting to the finish line, my clothes were soaked all the way through, rivulets of rain were dripping off my head, and I LOVED IT.

    2. I recall running on the beach in pea-soup fog. It was one of those weird ground-hugging clouds that form out of nowhere while the sun is brightly shining. I remember how strange it felt to not have any landmarks to help me gauge how far I'd gone. Meanwhile, little drops of water are condensing on my eyelashes.

    3. See Flashback #1 in my profile.

    I ran down by the river with my dog a few weeks ago, just before the weather here started to turn cold. We took a break by one of the parks, went down to the water, where it was JUST shallow enough. I took off my shoes and waded in with him. He chased around the waves, trying to eat them. I got to cool off and enjoy the boats going past.

    I love spending quality time with my dog.. who cares if I looked like a weirdo running around in the water with my dog. icon_razz.gif

    I started a whole thread about how nice it feels to run shirtless in the summer: http://www.realjock.com/gayforums/937905/.
