“Focusing just on my breath and my next step has allowed me to tap into that innate ability to know exactly what my body craves at that moment, and allows me to enjoy the run.”
Featured Run: Madrona Marsh
The Madrona Marsh Preserve in Torrance is the last vernal marsh remaining in the South Bay area of Los Angeles and one of few wetlands located within an urban landscape. Situated on land that was set aside for oil production in 1924, Madrona Marsh was never developed—unlike the surrounding city—and remains a valuable natural habitat for birds, reptiles, insects and even small mammals.
