Sun + Bay = Awesomesauce Ride

I’m trying to build my endurance back up and work on cross training.  That’s the fun part.  Bring on the the hurt. 

Wednesday I went on a 22 mile ride with my new riding buddy, Ken.  I had a great time chatting about life & races the ride just flew by.  I was kinda sad it was over.  But there’s talk about making it a weekly event.

Oh my gosh can I just say the weather blows me away up here!  I was sweating so much.

We rode along the Bay Trail to Coyote Point.

We continued along the path to the trees off in the distance. Ken told me there was a little climbing but a rewarding view. So up we went.

The first wasn’t bad at all but the 2nd incline was a bit more steep and longer. I was about half way up. He said drop it down a gear…. so I did…but then he said, oh wait the other way. I’m thinking this is really tough (because I was in the wrong gear)…and I’m clipped in…with Ken behind me. This is not going to end well. LOL!

I was finally in the right gear and was able to unclip to catch my breath. I was ‘thisclose’ to the top.

Before I left I put a pot roast in the crock pot.  It turned out well.  Then Mike roped me into watching the movie Taken.  99% of the time I don’t like watching movies.  I just don’t have the attention span for them, but this one got me hooked.  And now I want to work for the CIA.  Wonder if they’ll take little ole me?

My other favorite movies are High Crimes, Home Alone 1 &2, A Christmas Story, Silence Of The Lambs, Double Jeopardy, Christmas With The Kranks, Step Brothers and others I can’t think of right now.

Do you enjoy watching movies?

What are your favorites?
