Glencoe Cove.

As I embarked on my morning power walk to Glencoe Cove, the coastline stretched out before me, inviting me to explore its rugged beauty. I entered Zone 1 , surrounded by the vibrant colours of daffodils in bloom. Along the hike, I marvelled at the majestic redwoods standing tall, capturing their grandeur in photographs and videos for my podcast audience. As I reach the end of my journey, returning to my street, the Running Jackal bids you farewell.

The top loop

Running in the rain is something us Victorian have to get used to here on the drippy wet coast of North America. I decided to go back to Kings Pond and record some duck noises at the Cedar Hill Golf Municipal Course. There will be a link to my YouTube Channel for the Video Vignette Version.

First light on the Meadows

Solo early morning run on the meadows of P'KOLS (Mt.Douglas) here in cloudy but super mild Victoria B.C. The video took some editing as the audio was compromised as the camera was perched in my pocket, meaning I had a lot of 'cloathing noise' to deal with! (17:XX)

Back to the Glory Zone

Carlos Castillo Today at 9:07 AM · Saanich, British Columbia Most of the trails were in great shape today, the first time in a full week! Today was my first run in six days. This is very serious in my life, I would normally be finishing off run four or five of the week. I have been walking and hiking mostly in wellington boots all this week. It's very hard to run in 'Wellies'
