The Peak Posse SoCal MPC 5K Brunch

Keeping fit is a goal so many of us have. When you combine Sam Heughan’s My Peak Challenge (MPC) with The Peak Posse SoCal friends, it is just down-right delightful – not to mention fun!

Some members of The Peak Posse SoCal (a division of The Peak Posse which is world-wide) gathered together for a 5K and brunch event in Southern California. Of course, Sass3 joined in on the opportunity to participate.

My Peak Challenge: A Hike to Rock House

It was a beautiful day for a hike!  After all the rain in San Diego, the sun finally came out and so did we. Seven families gathered on January 29, 2017 to hike a nearby trail known as Rock House.  As you have read from our earlier My Peak Challenge blogs, our interest in getting fit, spending time in nature, and bonding with friends and family have become important pastimes.  Although most people on this hike are not Outlander fanatics like us, Sass3, the goal was still the same: exercise and spend time with loved ones.

J&C Hike Los Penasquitos Canyon Preserve

Our Jamie and Claire Funko Pop! figures tend to go a lot of places with us, particularly on our My Peak Challenge (MPC) hikes.

On this serene day, which happened to be Sam Heughan‘s birthday,  a group of “Peakers” decided to hike to the waterfall at Los Penasquitos Canyon Preserve. This oasis is centrally located to the 5, 805 and 15 freeways right near Mira Mesa, California.

Sweetwater Regional Park and Nature Trails

Bonita, California is a small town in San Diego nestled between National City and Chula Vista.  It is only a 10 minute drive from my home and is the hometown of my fellow Sass3, Lady K.  Bonita is known for having the Sweetwater River flowing through it.  There lays a golf course and park where many, like myself, exercise and enjoy the outdoors.  People on horse back can also be seen riding. I have lived in the area for over 30 years, but was not aware of nature trails nearby.  Finding these walking paths was a treat!

In this blog I will share directions to the park,  trail highlights, and breakfast recommendations.  At the end, make sure you click on our Flickr link to view all the photos from this day.

San Diego 5-Peak Challenge

As part of Sam Heughan’s My Peak Challenge (MPC), a group of us in San Diego decided to do the Mission Trails Regional Park’s 5-Peak Challenge.  The goal is to hike to the summit of 5 peaks, take a photo with the sign, submit the photos and get a certificate and pin.

San Diego has many wonderful trails to hike, but so many people go to Cowles Mountain.  The Mission Trails Regional Park wanted to make the community aware of other trails in order to lessen the traffic on Cowles and to make people aware of other trails in the area.
