Beating The Storm

29 miles used to be a great bike ride.  Now I'm consistently running those distances training for the Mt. Diablo challenge (50k) coming up in few weeks.
I ran my hills route on Saturday which included the Carquinez Highlands, Mt. Wanda, and the 2 highest peaks of Briones - some of those a couple times.  Nearly 5,000 feet of elevation gain...  

A storm was coming in off the Pacific and would make Sunday quite wet.  It made Saturday morning's skies glow and the wild flowers pop

Here are some of the reasons I love those hills. 

Next time - why not come with me?
