Monday was walk2werq Monday and I had a lot of fun walking through the Castro, Twin Peaks, Midtown Terrace, Portal, Saint Francis Wood and Ocean before getting my donut and hopping on BART at Balboa Park.  The walk came in at about 6 miles.  I was most definitely feeling the long ride the day before but I didn't want to waste the morning so I pushed through.  It was a gorgeous morning and I had a great time.  I took a bunch of pics:

Smart, charming Midtown Terrace:

This is the Midtown Reservoir.  I didn't know it was here and it's huge:

Magellan Street on Forest Hill:

The Saint Francis Wood entrance:

Balboa Terrace:

I saw this on Balboa Terrace.  No idea what it is but it's gorgeous:

The gates to Ingleside Terrace:

I worked from home for a couple of hours mid day and then I came back downtown for my spin and strength training classes.  I was so beat I didn't think I was gonna be able to finish them both but I did and in fact I felt better when I was done than I did when I started which tells me that what I'm doing is a good idea.  I headed home and went to bed.  I was beat.  Mr. Poe comes home on Wednesday.  I can't wait.

Sunday I led an ALC ride out to Petaluma and it was a SUPER long day.  Petaluma day is always a long one and I was out thirteen hours which is pretty much what it is every year.  We had a lot of fun and I think the riders do really well.  It was Easter which made the day a challenge because not only was the Cheese Factory closed, but so was my first choice of lunch which is a disaster when you show up to Petaluma starving and really needing to eat.  I think I was kind of bitchy to the lady at the place I ended up at because I was just so hungry.  Crazy hungry.  I had to hustle everybody from Petaluma home but I think it worked out OK and I was home before dark.  The dogs were not forgiving over the the hours I was gone.  I was so beat when I got home I felt like my PC when it's updating where it counts down to a mandatory reboot and you have to finish before then.  Here are my pics from the day:

Saturday I led a Different Spokes ride up Mt Tam and we had a great time with reasonable weather.  It was very windy at points but not as cold as the last time I did Mt. Tam so I didn't complain.  I got some pics of the riders on Edgewood:

The gang at Boot Jack:

I moved ahead of the group after Boot Jack as I didn't want to be gone for too long.  I got a couple pics from the top of Tam:

Alpine Dam Lake:

I headed into Fairfax and realized I'd left my wallet at Whole Foods in Mill Valley.  I called and they had it.  I picked it up and the money was still in it.  Thanks guys!  I headed back into San Francisco and stopped by Mountain Lake Park on the way home.  They've finished work on the lake and the park looks fantastic:

I headed home and had lunch and got cleaned up and got the little ones in the stroller and took all the dogs out.  I saw this gorgeous whatever the hell it is growing in the front yard of a house on Romain:

I went and visited Ben and Courtney and Ben took the dogs around in the stroller.  It's a hit!

29% grade!

I ended walking the dogs 6.7 miles which was an awful lot.  We did a lot of hills and you get a pretty good upper body workout from a stroller on hills.  I headed home and the dogs and I had dinner and then we watched a lecture on Bernini in the Vatican and then we went to bed.
