Here is the promised pictorial evidence that last Saturday's Low Tide Run was well worth whatever pain it inflicted.
Before hitting our stride, we each had to cross a rocky path made more treacherous by the crumbling cliffs and all the sandy soles that had gone immediately before us. Yes, people fell. Thankfully, I wasn't among them.
The view from atop the Torrey Pines hill. Worth the torture to get to this point, if you ask me.
Coming down to the final stretch, there's a suspension bridge at the Scripps Institute for Oceanography. You gotta admit, it's tres cool.
Home base is not much beyond this point. Note the ball of sun trying desperately to gain a glowing edge on the clouds.
