    City Girl Hikes: Serenity Swing Trail – San Luis Obispo, CA

    I’m a sucker for a SWING! Spending Labor Day Weekend (LDW is apparently the cool new acronym to use) in San Luis Obispo (SLO), Lil and I knew we’d try to work out somehow some way. The hotel gym was closed due to COVID. So, I told her we should hike. Or run. Even though I told her this, I only came half prepared.

Other than that, it was business as usual for our hometown race under the Giants race series. Oh, one thing to note is that after three years they finally updated the race title to fit within the Giant race series a little more cohesively. It is no longer called the Riverfront race. I guess…
