frybowrunner 5/5 for #blackandwhitephotochallenge (last night's little lost hope in humanity doesn't count). Throw back to March of 2013 when I had a great day with some special friends tagging all five of Mt. Diablo's peaks on a single run. No one ever counts Twin Peaks as a peak, but since it's one of my favorite spots and it has "Peak" in its name, I count it. I haven't done this since then. When I got to this spot, a couple of hikers asked me if I had arrived via the Mitchell Canyon Trailhead way below or the summit, I answered with the biggest grin, Both. #fromwhereirun #mtdiablo #trailrunning #traillove 22h

frybowrunner Many a day, many a mile, many a dream, I run down this road. Sometimes a struggle, many times a struggle, I run down this road. #fromwhereirun #mtdiablo 4/5 #blackandwhitephotochallenge 2d

frybowrunner From yesterday's lovely trail time on the lower areas of #mtdiablo. Took this picture soon after coming across three volunteers replacing a vandalized trail sign post. They said four of them had recently been broken and dragged/carried a good distance. What sort of Jackwipes do something like that? #dissapointing
3/5 #blackandwhitephotochallenge #fromwhereirun

  •   linden_ca The same sort of jackwipes that knock over headstones I can't help but wonder who parented/parents those people! 3d
  •   larryrenner Beautiful image. And agreeing with @linden_ca 3d
  •   vo2_max We have the same issue here all the time. I understand the basis for almost every crime, even territory-marking graffiti, but I can't understand why someone climbs a beautiful mountain and then destroys the trail signs at the top. Are they mad the view wasn't as spectacular a they hoped? 3d
  •   veggierunner Boo! But great picture (as usual) 3d
  •   frybowrunner @vo2_max Exactly. I just don't get it. And it is a bit unnerving to know I may cross paths with these guys. 3d
  •   refusnik I've always been amazed at what people will do to trail signs. Great shot! 3d
  •   run_amer_run I wish I have a good answer!! So sad 3d

frybowrunner My hometown had a Hershey Chocolate factory for years. You could smell the chocolate for miles around. Then it moved to Mexico. True story. 2/5 #blackandwhitephotochallenge as tagged by @bekahstendahl 4d

frybowrunner Urgh! The challenge is on! #stravaproblems 1w
  •   frybowrunner @jwjcc1 I don't think I have any more. I keep losing them! And, BTW, you're king in my book. 1w
  •   frybowrunner @spyseamike I know, huh!?! 1w
  •   grayrunsutah I got a CR the other day and I was so excited. I looked it up and I was 1 of 1. LOL!!! @frybowrunner 1w
  •   frybowrunner @grayrunsutah That's happened to me too. Too funny. Most of the segments I run only have a few women on the list. 1w
  •   huw22 I've only 1 KOM on Strava and that's a downhill! 1w
  •   frybowrunner @huw22 The way I look at it is anyone can be a good climber(weight lifting/gym work outs), but running downhill, especially on trails takes running to different level. So kudos to you! 1w
  •   run_amer_run Totally unexceptable..this CR belong to you!! Now go get it 6d
  •   frybowrunner Totally! I'll try soon! @run_amer_run 6d

frybowrunner What's not to love about green grasses and log jumping? Feel good ten miles today to my secret spot after yesterday's pavement pounding 20 miles makes for a great start to the weekend. Hope you all have a good one! 2w

frybowrunner My least favorite smells when running are cologne/perfume and curry. One of them tainted my otherwise pretty nice run today. 2w
  •   frybowrunner @radrunner1 I had a really bad experience with a guy wearing strong cologne or deod in my last half marathon. I was stuck running next to him for the longest time. Then I would pas him on the downhill just to have him pass me on the uphill. It took me 2-3 miles to finally pull away for good. It was awful. 2w
  •   runningjasonw Curry would make me too hungry if I had to smell that (which fortunately never has) 2w
  •   frybowrunner @runningjasonw After running along someone sweating it out of his pores during a marathon, I never want to smell it while running ever again. 2w
  •   runningjasonw Argh. I had wondered why you were smelling it on a run. Naively thought you just went past a house cooking it. 2w
  •   frybowrunner @runningjasonw I'm fine with it wafting out of someone's house, as long ad I'm not running, which is what happened the other day. Post Traumatic Curry Syndrome. 2w
  •   runningjasonw PTCS 2w
  •   radrunner1 @frybowrunner I'll be wearing Old Spice and Brut next time I race in your area. 2w
  •   frybowrunner @radrunner1 Thanks for the warning!! 2w

frybowrunner Went on a run with my bestie today, but didn't take any pictures, so here is a #latergram from Wednesday. If I could run up to here every day, I would. #nevereasyalwaysworthit #fromwhereirun #fromwhereihike #fromwhereiamatpeace 3w
  •   sstoumi Day late here, whats the location 3w
  •   frybowrunner @sstoumi Hey, Stephen, if you run/hike from the summit peak to the North Peak along the North Peak Trail, you will see these rocks, they are just to the south off the regular trail a bit. If you park at the Devil's elbow spot on the way up, it is a pretty flat hike out to this spot. 3w
  •   sstoumi Awesome. Still haven't got up to that part of Diablo. 3w
  •   frybowrunner @sstoumi Drive your family up here. There is a great visitors center and check out the Mary Bowerman Trail and Rock city. 3w
  •   veggierunner 3w
  •   run_amer_run Never been there. .hopefully soon after the new year! 2w
  •   frybowrunner @run_amer_run Heck ya! 2w
  •   runningjasonw Oh man for sure That's a pretty sweet view. 2w

frybowrunner The hardest part of Thanksgiving is not being able to be with all those we hold closest to the heart, whether it be for logistics or death. My heart goes out to all who just spent the holiday minus a loved one due to a recent death. 3w

frybowrunner Devil's Elbow, how I've missed you! First summit of Mt. Diablo since July and it did not disappoint. Gotta love days like this! Hopefully I can get some company the next time I come up here though. I would live it! 😬 3w
