Running the beaches of San Diego (U.S.A.)

If you happen to be in San Diego for a few days, as I was, I would highly recommend this run. I took a taxi from La Jolla to the Torrey Pines State Reserve and ran the beach (with a small residential deviation towards the end) all the way back to La Jolla. Once in La Jolla, keep an eye out for the Coast Walk Trail deviation which provides beautiful views over the coast from the cliffs. It’s a phenomenal beach run with hard packed sand and a long, quiet beach.
