Thursday I managed to take the dogs out twice with the new stroller.  We walked down to Dolores Park before work and then Alamo Square after work.  The stroller is working out really well.  Mimi jumps into it all by herself and Ashley Jr. is becoming more and more amicable every time.  I'm a bit slower with the stroller than without, obviously, but it manages to give me a pretty good upper body workout with all the hills.  People, of course, point and laugh but I don't care.  Everybody's happy and I can handle a little personal humiliation for that.  Here are some pics:



Alamo Square:


This is a new development on the site of the old San Francisco State campus.  I think it's gonna be really nice and do wonders for the neighborhood:


Across the street from that site is the Nightingale house.  It's being renovated and I think it's gonna be super fantastic:


The view looking down Buchanan towards the Mission:


I went to a spin class at lunchtime and ended up walking the dogs 5.7 miles between the two walks.  I was super beat come 8:30 and went to bed.  Long ass day.

Wednesday I got up and out of the house at a little early and went on a rid.  I headed off Corbett to Portola to Twin Peaks and up to the viewing platform.  I got some pics:





I continued on Twin Peaks to Clayton to Ashbury to Frederick to Masonic to Page to Baker to McAllister to Polk to O'Farrell to Hyde to Post to Kearny to Clay to Sansome and into work.  I headed home for lunch and then led a Lifeycle training ride out to Tiburon in the afternoon.  We had a good turnout and it was a lot of fun.  Here's some pics:




Mr. Poe was in a sour mood which spread to me and that put a bit of a damper on the rest of the day.  I'll manage.  I had dinner, got cleaned up and went to bed.

Tuesday I managed to get up and out on my bike.  The first time I'd done that in quite a while.  I headed into work Market to Sanchez to Page to Webster to Post to Kearny to Pacific to Clay to Sansome.  I headed over to visit Mr. Criss over lunch.  His dogs are still talking to me which was a surprise because they seemed pretty sick of us by the time they got picked up on Monday.  I picked up donuts at Pepples on the way back to my desk and they were just delicious.

After work I went for a great ride.  I headed off Pacific to Fillmore to Jackson.  I stopped for some pics of some of the glorious homes in Presidio Heights on Jackson:


This house is Tudorlicious:




I continued on Jackson to Arguello to Washington and over to the WWII Maritime Memorial which is dedicated to members of the armed forces who died during WWII defending the coastal waters.  It was built in 1958 and it's pretty fantastic:







I love the way it looks from a distance.  It's like a manifestation of the invisible wall that protected our coasts during the war.


I headed over to El Camino Del Mar and made my way up to the Legion on Honor museum.  I took a bunch of pics:






Pax Jerusalemme:



They've done a lot of work around Sutro Baths.  Plan on me dragging Mr. Poe there come summer:



Ocean Beach:





I made my way down to JFK and headed into Golden Gate Park.  I followed that to Kezar to Page to Scott to Duboce to Noe to Market to 17th to Ord and home for dinner.  After dinner I watched a lecture on early 20th art and went to bed.

Monday was a walk2werq Monday of sorts but I ended up back home instead of work and I took Rufus again.  The walk came in at 7.4 miles.  We headed through Cole Valley and the Sunset to Grand View Park.  It was super foggy and there wasn't much to see.  This was the view looking down the western steps:


This is pretty Cecilia St which is in inner Parkside.  It looks like it all went up at the same time and it looks really nice:



From there I headed over to Portal where I got a toasted chocolate chip bagel with peanut butter and jelly on it from Noah's.  Probably junk food but oh so delicious.  I headed home and got to work and Rufus lied down, presumably for several days:


Mr. Chris and David came and got Sofi and Nisha mid day and I headed down into the office.  After work I went for a spin class and then a strength training class that KICKED MY ASS.  I headed home and had dinner and went to bed.  It had been an incredibly long day and I was beat.

Sunday I led an ALC ride out to Lucas Valley and then out to Point Reyes Station.  The bridge was closed to bikes and pedestrians because of a 10k they were having so some of us started from Sausalito and then rest of us took the bike shuttle over the bridge.  We had a great day.  I'm so proud of all of our riders!  It's gonna be a great ride this year!

Pics of the hotness:






San Rafael has a gorgeous downtown area near the mission:








Pretty China Camp Park:



Buz and I in front of the Frank Lloyd Wright designed Marin County Civic Center:













We got home pretty early all things considered.  I walked the dogs and got cleaned up and ready for bed.  Long day.
