Despite how physically difficult it has been at times for Dave to run everyday, the journey has provided some spectacular scenery. Fuel for the soul that provides great inspiration.

Today was tough given the environment; it was incredibly windy which required extra effort on Dave’s part. Sand was flying everywhere (thank goodness Dave decided to wear sunglasses today) and dirt was all over. One good thing about this area was that Dave got a break from the heat as it was on the cooler, if not cold, side for the majority of the day. Ventura was quite beautiful as there was a bunch of waterways throughout and boats abounded; it had a bit of an east coast vibe to it and Dave said it reminded him a lot of Florida.
