This morning, after running for a little over two hours, I was on the Copper Creek Trail aka Post to Pillar, where the trail does an "S" turn. At the same time, five mountain bikers came down from the San Elijo road access point and went up the trail towards Brightwood.
I continued running and got a little extra energy when I realized I could catch the last mountain biker. I reeled her in and as I came up alongside her, she said, in a friendly voice, "You're not allowed to pass me on the hill." In response, I said, "You don't want to know how long I've been running for." She replied, "I'm sure I don't." I then passed her.
It is one thing to pass runners, it's a lot more fun to pass cyclists!
