Letting Go to Get More

This month was my birthday month and I am letting go of unnecessary baggage and things that weigh down my mental space. Letting go of attachments to material things and taking another look at where I spend my time, money and energy. I appreciate the path I have taken and things I've learned along the way. Some objects I hold on to for a temporary time then outgrow them and no longer "need" them. For example, I had a bunch of old marathon, half-marathon and tri finisher medals just sitting in a box. Each one represents a long block of my time, money and energy spent focusing and training for a challenging event and I felt really good about earning them. It kept me in good fitness and health. I no longer need them but I wanted share that inspiration so I donated them to Medals 4 Mettle,  a charity that awards medals to children and adults fighting debilitating illnesses.

I also donated my old Garmin to my sister who is doing chemo for her health issues. I feel pretty luck…

They had a nice farmers market in Larkspur close to the ferry landing. Grabbed some food and took the Larkspur ferry back to the San Francisco Ferry Building, where there was another farmer's market happening and food tents! Whenever people visit from out of town ask me where they should dine, I always recommend the Ferry Building. After that did the waterfront bike ride. Although it was very crowded, we rode past the gridlock traffic that was backed up from Embarcadero to Fisherman's Wharf. I really don't know why people choose to drive there just to sit in traffic.

The next day's pla…
