Saturday morning started early with my Cinderella Challenge training. We met, ready to roll at 8:00 a.m. This week's ride was 35 miles but included a couple of good climbs. The first was out to Alum Rock Park in San Jose. The second climb was a road connecting to Mt. Hamilton Road which was a fun descent. I remember doing the Alum Rock ride with the Fremont Freewheelers last year and it was hard. I felt much stronger this time doing it. That made me very happy. The weather was absolutely perfect for riding!
On the way home from the ride, Sara called me and said she and Sterling were going to Garin with Bella for a hike. Okay! I drove home, changed clothes real quick, grabbed Boomer and went over to Garin for a three mile hike. Unfortunately I forgot my camera. The cows are back and that's always a happy sight for me. They are still fuzzy. It always makes my time out there more enjoyable when I can see the cows happily grazing.
Sunday I took Theresa and Kristi to Pacifica with me to run a PCTR event.

The weather God's are being very generous to us this month as the temps were high 50's to low 60's in Pacifica on Sunday morning. It was just beautiful. I was happy to be at a PCTR event again. I miss seeing all those people in that little trail running community.
After a quick lunch and nap that afternoon, Sara and I drove up to UC Davis to see Toby Mac and Brandon Heath perform. I enjoy these concerts a lot more than Sara does but she goes with me because she doesn't want me to go by myself. I would have no problem going alone but she insists I shouldn't do that. I love spending time with her, no matter what we're doing anyway so I'm kind of glad she is so insistent. Afterwards, she admitted she actually liked Toby Mac and his songs.
We got home after 11:00 Sunday night so I was too tired to get up Monday morning at 5:15 for the 6:00 spin class. I know, shame on me. I had to work all day though and the extra two hours of sleep did me good.
