I was humbled this past week by some really tough times during workouts that shouldn't have felt that hard. During my last swim lesson I couldn't finish two laps without imploding. I came up gasping for air yelling, "I just ran a marathon six weeks ago, why can't I finish this lap!"
My friends often make fun of when I "check-in" to a place on Four Square. But it's paid off for me in the past when it told me that a Twitter friend was in the near vicinity. I got to meet this out of town person who was visiting to run SFM a few years ago. I always get a rush whenever I become the "Mayor" of a location (working on getting my mayorship back at my favorite sushi restaurant!). And being a Four Square mayor has finally reaped some rewards. My monthly membership pass at my yoga studio was up for renewal yesterday and since I am the "mayor" I got a 20% discount!
We had a heat wave in the Bay Area over the past week and it was miserable. So when I got to Crissy Field on Saturday morning and saw the layer of fog over the bridge, I was so, so happy. As I ran across it, through the thick layer of fog, the fog horns were sounding. It was my bliss!
