I don't know what I would do without this place. It's so beautiful and relaxing to be here, out of the city and in tune with nature. Runyon is my escape from hollywood; it's a great workout and I can get a great tan at the same time. There is nothing better then the feeling of accomplishment after making it to the top of the big hill. I am amazed at how much easier it is becoming for me now, after just a month of regularly going. My goal is to jog 75% of the hard trail without stopping for a breather. Last week I started making it through without stopping, jogging the smaller of the steep hills and almost halfway up the super steep one.
