The morning was cool and damp with a mixture of the marine layer and a light drizzle. I was grateful for the warmth of my Zensah Compression Sleeves on my arms.
We started off just south of the Huntington Beach Pier and then we headed east on the Santa Ana River Trail.
Along the way, Isabelle offered some pointers she had picked up from her triathlon classes and I shared some of the things Coach Steve had taught me.
I focused on staying in my portion of the lane so I wouldn't hit either one of the girls.
On our way back, as we were going under a wide overpass, I saw the most terrifying thing ever.
I looked up to my left and saw a number of what appeared to be homeless people perched at the top of the cement wall just below the street above. Lining the entire length of the wall were what I presumed to be stolen bicycles.
We ended up doing a total of 30 miles.
I had a really good time and I'm definitely looking forward to future rides with Isabelle and Kathleen.
