On Top of the World
...Or just on top of Berkeley! This is one of my favorite "view" spots in the Bay Area. Up in Tilden, it's just a gorgeous overlook. We took my parents here when they were visiting a month ago, and Captain was happy to show them around!
I actually used to run up to (and past) this overlook when I was marathon training, and the first time I made it up to this spot- after miles of steep uphill climb- I was kind of awestruck. I mistakenly thought it was called inspiration point- which is actually just a little further down the road- and because it did inspire me so much (to keep running and to love taking it all in!) - I still call it Inspiration Point now. Can't wait to get back to long runs post-baby. I bet Captain can't wait either!
