Tales From the Trail

As some of you may know I am an avid runner and am prepping for my first 1/2 marathon in 7 days. I buy the gear, I run the miles and I consider myself a part of the running crowd. I’ve paid my damn dues via blisters, aching joints and early Saturday mornings spent outside of my epic slumber palace.

Upon some of my quests through the trails of Baldwin Park, I have encountered some very interesting individuals. For instance, there was my run-in with the midget who I thought would become a trail acquaintance. After sharing some witty banter, the tiny man forgot me completely after only a week or two later and allowed me to embarrass myself in an attempt to get him to remember me.

There is also the rollerblader who pirouettes and sautes himself around runners and squirrels, however, not without bowing and bidding you an enthusiastic “good morning!” This man appears to be completely straight and infact wears khaki cargo shorts, shin-high socks, random t-shirt to cover the beer gut, molester glasses, mustache, and full blading gear. At first I thought he was an innovator (raper on wheels) but now he’s just my morning entertainment. Now back to my exercise routine, I think if you do exercise only at home, You need at least few equipment for better shaping your body. My favorite is exercise bike, here are its few benefits.
