Strong, Light and Beautiful

Good morning. About the time this is autoposted on Friday morning, I’m enjoying the last bit of good weather in the Bay Area by joining Beverly and Kate in Cupertino for a short road ride.

Beverly runs women’s cycling clinics as Strong, Light and Beautiful. Much of 2010 has been on hiatus for her as she’s recovered from major surgery, but she’s back on her feet and hopefully will run these clinics again soon.

Kate leads Global Soul Adventures, an adventure travel company. I met Kate on last year’s Taiwan adventure, and she begins every day with either a run, a swim, a bike ride, and sometimes all three together.

If you see two very fit women and one slovenly guy on Foothill Expressway, please don’t honk, but feel free to wave or something.
