Locals only. That sums up the vibe on Highway 101 today in San Diegoland.
From Del Mar to Carlsbad, the coastline was pretty quiet (save a few Harleys). Workers in Encinitas installed a grandstand for tomorrow’s Holiday Parade. Will Santa be wearing board shorts and carry a Hansen longboard? Hope it’s not too warm if he’s plans to pull on full red suit and white beard.
Training data: Got 60 in with smallish 2,500 feet of rollers. Would have made it to San Clemente and back. But while I was reducing my aerobic capacity to that of a gnat these past few weeks it seems someone moved San Clemente 20 or so miles farther north. Need better legs. Lungs. Hands. Shoulders. Snacks. Go Juice.
Before heading out, configured my bride’s new iPod Touch 8GB, engraved and loaded with great stuff, including new John Legend. Quality counts. Tomorrow: tree, lights, candy canes and Nate King Cole. The dogs will be meserized, the girls will get cozy.
Hope things are great where you are.
