Weaving in and out of trail lines that criss-cross like arteries, your sneakers digging into the gravel with a satisfying crunch, you know you’re making your best time yet. Social squirrels yammer at you as you dash by—as if cheering on your one-person-race. Families are playing in the grass and couples are walking their dogs. The sometimes-solitary-feeling city feels more alive, like your pounding heart. And, just when you can’t run any farther, you round the corner to find that perfect ocean view. Talk about a runner’s high!
