Beautiful morning here in Simi Valley. Heading to the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum with the kids now. Really excited about touring the real Air Force One they have there.

I'll probably do a few easy miles on the beach this afternoon. The hotel where we are staying is on a cliff overlooking the ocean and there's this very long set of wooden stairs going down to the beach. I'll probably run those a few times as well.

Planning on about 18 miles tomorrow with a few miles close to race pace just to get a feel for sea level running. 

PM: Six miles up and down Pismo Beach. 

Nice night. We had Abby babysit while Ann and I went down to Del's - "a Shell Beach tradition since 1973"- to pick up a pizza. We had a glass of chianti at the bar while we waited. A 30 minute date! Del's is an old school Italian restaurant. Red checkered table cloths, candles, heavy on the red sauce entrees. No Northern Italian Tuscan #!*& for Del! You can envision Deniro,  Pesci, and the Rat Pack dining there.

I'd love that place! Awesome! You need to call me and say, Steve, fly in and babysit for us for a night!
