The Bayshore Trail in San Diego

The Bayshore Trail in downtown San Diego is one of my favorite places to run in America. Like Central Park in New York, Chicago's Lakefront, or the Embarcadero in San Francisco, it's where runners find rare long stretches to run, uninterrupted by auto or foot traffic as the would find in most parts of the city. Like most popular running trails, it's character changes over the course of the day. In the morning, it's full of runners and a few bikers getting in their morning workouts. As the morning evolves into the day vacationers and sightseers start taking over.

All the great views of the city, San Diego Bay, and the various ships of all shapes and sizes docked along the trail make for a run that's a great way to start the day.


  1. Beer - the reason for so much hate against women in this world. All that energy you are used for running would best be spent donating time at a women's shelter, or campaigning against the right wing nazi's who are trying to take over again.

  2. Candle, thanks so much for your comments. You've greatly improved this post!
