In an effort to mix things up for my training i once again find myself hiking up the hills on Runyon Canyon. There are so many types of people that come to use the trail that it is absolutely entertaining. The people come in all shapes and sizes with an array of quirks to keep you amused throughout your whole workout. And best of all there are tons of people wearing next to nothing so its definitely enjoyable.
It’s a dog friendly spot which is great to see the dogs having a good time, possibly they are the ones taking their owners for a walk and not the other way around. However I do wish the owners of said dogs would realize that their dogs don’t have thumbs and therefore are unable to pick up their own poop and throw it in the bins provided. It is just one of the most disgusting things to have to be dodging poop everywhere. So any dog owners who may read this, PICK UP THE POOP!
Aside from the perils of dog poop dodging, there views are unbelievable and it really feels great to be able to get the the top, it makes me feel a sense of achievement. its definitely worth it to go.
I also love that there is an honesty stand at the bottom of the trail, you can get cold water and a few other things. I wonder how many people are honest and how many people just help themselves.
