Balboa park run and happy hour at Imperial House +optional drink-about after

In the spirit of finding new well-lit winter runs, we'll be heading inland a bit this week. This run is a little shorter than usual, but feel free to add some distance by doing a little extra running inside the park if you're feeling extra motivated! 

We'll meet on the corner of 6th and Laurel and run up to Upas. We'll turn right at that corner and follow the road that runs through the park, parallel to 6th. There are actual running trails as well, but they don't look well lit, and there are a lot of homeless who live there, so I've opted to run along the street where the street lamps are. Feel free to jump on the trails that parallel the street instead if you'd like. We'll run down to the bridge that crosses the 163 into the park and run down to the fountain at the end. We'll come back, turn left and follow the road down to Juniper, turn right until we hit 6th avenue again, and run back to Laurel.  This is a pretty easy route- please check the link to see the map.

We'll do happy hour at Imperial House after.

Hope to see you all there!

      If you're a little late you can let us know and meet up with us at 6:15 at the end of the run.

    I REALLY, REALLY, REALLY want to come, but unfortunately, I don't get off work until 5:30, so coming to a 5:30 event always means that I have to try and sneak out early. I was hoping that maybe I could, but I don't think I can get away with it tonight. Sorry. :(

      Hey! You're not supposed to be that observant. ;-) Yes, this is twice, and for that, I'm sorry. Since I am not supposed to get off work until 5:30, I knew it would be hard, but I wanted to come so badly that I RSVP'ed hoping for the best. Unfortunately, we are so swamped this week, I don't think there's any way I can sneak out early. I can make 6pm, but then I know that our happy hour is in jeopardy, so what is one to do?

    5:30 is always a dicey bet for me, since I typically get off work at 5 (in Sabre Springs)... But this location might be easier for me to get to... I'll try to finally get to one of these runs!

    I'll do my best to try and get there. 5:30pm is hard. I really am supposed to work until 5:30pm, so I would have to sneak out to make it, but I'll try.
