Me, Theresa, Toni
If you enlarge this photo, you can see Alcatraz & Angel Island. The larger of the two, on the right side, is Angel Island. That's where we will be running. You can also see the Golden Gate Bridge, just to the left.
Boomer and I drove up to Oakland to hook up with Theresa and Toni. We got in their car and drove up to Berkeley to begin our run. We ran through Tilden, Sibley and Huckleberry Regional Parks before getting to my car again.
For some reason, this tree made Toni crave sushi! Don't ask me. LOL
There's Mount Diablo in the far distance. Just shows how big that mountain really is. I can see it from everywhere I go here in the bay area.
A (very chatty male) cyclist was kind enough to take this picture for us. Boomer absolutely LOVED keeping track of three women.
We were gone longer than we had planned, due to a late start because someone (not me) got lost. None of us had enough fuel so Theresa was tempted to eat a leaf that was the size of her head!
Why am I so stoked? I think we are going to ROCK on Saturday! Why? Because Theresa is strong on the uphills so she'll be able to talk me up them. And I'm pretty good on the downhills so I can pull her on those. We'll have to work together on the flat portions. But as of yesterday, I feel like we'll be really good running this 50K together. I'm super excited about it now. ;)
Now I just have to make it through these next five days without running. GAH! Wish me luck!!
