The everyday life we live...............
For a long time it seemed to me that real life was about to begin, but there was always some obstacle in the way. Something had to be got through first, some unfinished business; time still to be served, a debt to be paid. Then life would begin. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life.

Had a great 40 mile training run along the Ohlone wilderness out to Rose Peak and back it took me 11:10 to finish. It started out nice but got cold, and it rained the last 2 hours.
I was the only one out on the 20 mile section from Sunol to Rose and back. And I only saw one person before Mission peak. Once I came down the peak at the end, there were a few people going up in the rain, saw my friend Joe.
I love that Sunol is so remote and if you want to go to Rose Peak it's a run or long 20 mile hike round trip.
It's a beautiful area to train.
