That is the longest email about nothing that gets absolutely zero accomplished I have ever read. Talk about trying to make sure I feel good about complaining. What a joke.

Saturday Run Observations

This is what I came across during my Saturday morning run:
That sweet Giants and Tim Lincecum mural
Crazy triathletes in lingerie getting ready to jump in the water at Aquatic Park
Elderly Chinese more limber than me doing Tai Chi
Saturday morning boot camps everywhere
A nickle
Realization that pushing the walk button at crosswalks does little good
A clear mind
Cool playground with a spongy surface
Cherry blossoms in full bloom along the Lyon Street Stairs
