Another day with stunning ocean views. Especially the first 8miles, where
the main motivation was to run forward just to see what was behind the
next cliffs and the next bend :-)
About 5 miles before Oxnard (a town on the way to Ventura) I met Martin
who was out on his Sunday jog. Coincidently we were just looking for a
more convenient road to the finish in Ventura and got all the directions
needed from Martin. For the next half hour he was running the same road
anyway and I much enjoyed our talk !
He told me that he mainly ran for health at a relaxed pace and gave the
impression of being very happy with his running. Much reminded me of the
non-competitive part of my run. (I also do a lot of competitions, even
some during world run, which I have great fun with, but it?s sometimes a
different way of training).
Well, that got me further to finish on another easy day :-)
