Monday was walk2werq Monday and I took Muni down to work to drop off my drag and then walked Columbus out to Aquatic Park and then over Fort Mason to the Palace of Fine Arts.  Almost seven miles.  I will fully admit that I felt pretty creaky when I started but thanks to my good friend the energy drink I managed to get it together.

Fisherman's Wharf and Aquatic Park aren't nearly so horrible minus the tourists:



That's the luscious Fontana Towers rising behind Ghirardelli Square:



The Maritime Museum has a stunning deco design but it almost a complete snore inside.  A bit of a shame:






The path up to Fort Mason Park:

I went back to work via the Broadway Tunnel.  I'd had enough of the hills:


I went to a spin class after work and then home for dinner.  After, I sorted out my travel arrangements for the Lifecycle.  I'm driving home on Day 7.  I don't want to stay in LA.  I'll miss my husband more than I want to go to museums.

Sunday I led an ALC training ride out to the fabled Marshall Wall.  It's the hardest ride of the year and logistically the trickiest because we didn't have a sweep vehicle and there were only a handful of ride leaders.  And maybe there were a few tears but I was very proud of how well everybody did on the ride.  I seem to have totally started a trend for taking ass selfies at the top of Marshall Wall.  Why wouldn't you?  It seems to me a moment of empowerment Oprah would love.  We had to leave a little early from Jane Warner because a homeless person starting got frustrated with his electronics and started hacking at them with a small hatchet he had.  I didn't want that to spill over to bikes so we left.  Yikes!  Here are some pics from before the drama:

I love this farm that's about a third of the way down the hill to Marshall:






I got home at a reasonable hour and went to bed almost immediately.  Long ass day.

Saturday David and I headed up Mt. Tam yet again.  We rode San Francisco - Mill Valley - Pan Toll - Stinson - Borax - Fairfax - home via Corte Madera.   The camera on my phone died early on in the day so we went to the Apple Store in Corte Madera to get me a new one thinking it would be faster than the store on Chestnut.  I managed to get a couple of pics of the gorgeous day at Stinson:




I got home and got cleaned up and went to bed early.  Another fabulous day.

Friday I led an ALC ride to Alpine Dam Lake and then up Mount Tam.  We had a small group and it was lots of fun.  All the time I've spent on this route this season is really paying off.  I'm getting really strong on it.  We haven't had the greatest weather this spring and it was once again cold and a little foggy on the mountain but at least Alpine Dam Lake was gorgeous:

I got home and got cleaned up.  I took Mr. Poe out to dinner and then met Mr. Chris for drinks at Swirl.  Then I headed home and I went to bed.  Fabulous day.

Monday was walk2werq Monday and I had an awesome walk out to Grand View Park and then into work via Balboa Park BART that came in at about 6.5 miles.  It was cold and foggy but there were still beautiful views and I had great time:

Sunday I led an ALC training ride down to Half Moon Bay.  It was another cold day but we had nice riding down to Half Moon Bay and I had a fabulous time.  I don't get down to Pacifica often and it was super fun to ride around.  Then we continued down to Half Moon Bay and then home via Crystal Springs Canyon and then San Mateo.
