Blowing in the Wind
The last several years, I've spent the 4th of July with club members at the ACTC Pancake Breakfast. This year, since I'm not cleared to ride a bike yet, I decided to walk Windy Hill starting at the parking lot in Portola Valley and ending at the summit overlooking Skyline Blvd.
Guess what. It's frigging windy and it certainly is a hill. And where were the men! Oh I know, biking. I met a lot of families and dogs. And then, the runner came. OMG. I think I began panting, and no doubt, drooled a bit, as his lovely chiseled body sprinted past me. Talk about fireworks.... For a minute, I forgot about the wind, being sweaty, feeling grimy from the dust and missing biking with my friends on this holiday. I find walking hard. I managed to do 5.6 miles in 2 hours.
