Here We Go!
Or, what the hell have I gotten myself into and how can I arrange for sherpas to get me up this mountain?!
I like the alliteration so I left it, but to give myself a little credit I was making pretty good time! Yesterday I did a short jog (dang, my lungs are ridiculously weak), so I decided to do a brisk but longer walk. It was amazing outside; sunny, not too hot but warm enough to be out in a t-shirt and still work up a bit of a sweat. I head straight down Park Street to the waterfront, and then head up the boardwalk. Interestingly, Alameda surprised me today. One of the things that I had noticed several years ago when I was staying here was how mono-ethnic it seemed. Today, it was a beautiful colorful day on all fronts and that made me happy. On my way back along the beach I decided to walk in the sand to add a little more muscle power to my walk. As always, the view was splendid.
Just as I was leaving the beach, I noticed a fellow trainer who looks to be challenging himself a bit more than I am at this time.
I am hoping to get it done by the end of May so that I can focus on training for the last two months.
If anyone wants to plan a hike with me, feel free to message me!
