Training deets: Saturday was a beautiful day so I laced up my shoes and did a 9 mile run on the Bay Trail. I've posted pictures of the bay trail before so I didn't take any this week, but just imagine a blue, cloudless sky, about 60 degrees (not too hot!), and the whole bay to look at. Despite the fact that I made several rookie mistakes (wearing the wrong socks gave me blisters, wearing the wrong bra was not comfortable, my toenails cut their neighboring toe and made them bleed, and I didn't get sunscreen around the back of my neck under my pony tail so I got sunburned) it was a really enjoyable run! I probably could have kept going for another mile or 2, but I was trying to save my legs for Sunday. Speaking of which.....
Sunday was our first group ride in preparation for 100 miles around Lake Tahoe. We did a 24 mile ride around Sausalito and Tiburon and it was awesome! The weather Sunday was a little cooler and cloudy, but it turned out to be perfect for our ride.
|Starting in Sausalito. Beautiful view of the bay and SF, but a little too cloudy for the pictures to come out well.|
|We rode through Fort Baker.|
|Turned the corner and there's the Golden Gate Bridge!|
|GG Bridge again.|
|Another cloudy view of the city/bay bridge.|
|Part of our route was on a bike/running path through Sausalito. Here you can see Tiburon on the other side of the water. That's where we're headed!|
|My riding buddies! Snacking at the halfway point.|
|Nothing like a French Rose after a long ride!|
