Wanted to do something close to town that would give me time to get to Turf Paradise by 11:30. (Even though the local horse season does not start until October, they still do simulcast from all over the country.) I haven't been to Deem Hills before, so that's what I chose. I did the circumference as a figure-8, with the southeast portion heading west up Palisade Trail, rather than down low nearer the neighborhood. Walked the first mile chatting with the male half of a married couple, whose wife was trail running up ahead of us. Nice folks. Starting at the east trailhead was a good idea, as there is no bathroom there, meaning the bathroom at Deem Hills Park was at the halfway point. If I had started at the park, I would have had to hold the #1 for an extra hour, as there are no hideaways where one can sneakily do one's business without risking a sex criminal record. Fair amount of elevation gain for a small suburban park. Oh, and did *very* well at the track. My other best day also immediately followed a hike. I may have to try that strategy more often ... ;)
