Today I met up with 5 other SP ladies and walked from Bowness Park to Edworthy. It's such a beautiful pathway that you almost forget you're a) in the city and b) excercising. The (b) part comes to a halt when you walk up the first hill. EGADS! Two hours and almost 5 and a half miles later I was very happy to sit down and munch on my veggie snacks that I brought with.
Then came the hard part. In a "brave little toaster" moment, I decided a couple days ago to bike back to Bowness. You know, leave the bike at Edworthy so I wouldn't have to get anyone to pick me up, etc. at the end. Yeh. Great idea. Except for these two things: I haven't riden my bike since I did the Ride for Heart in June of 2004 and the route is full of fricken fracken hills. All good when you're going down them... not so fun when you're going up. Slow & steady really saved my buttocks today.
At any rate, the blister on my foot (my fault) was TOTALLY worth meeting with and talking to the lovely ladies I spent two hours with today. No doubt about it.
