When my wife and I lived in southern California nearly a decade ago I used to run down to Laguna Beach from home and back. That constituted one of my weekly long runs, though I didn't know the exact distance (this being before GPS-enabled watches). On the way back home from Laguna I would have to walk up a good portion of Park Ave., as it's pretty steep.
Last week we were on vacation with our son and stayed in Laguna. I figured that I'd recreate the route in reverse. In addition to asphalt there is a healthy amount of fire road, which I especially liked.
