First, here is a progress shot I should have posted yesterday.
While I was heading to the San Gabriel River Trail junction, I passed another rider heading the opposite direction wearing a Cal Tri kit. As I neared the 20 mile point, he caught up with me. So we chatted briefly. His name was Arnel. I told him about the blog and my weekly blog on the California Triathlon website.
I made it all the way to and past Santa Fe Dam. The picture above is the ramp to the top of the dam. I tried to capture how steep it is but couldn't quite get it. I still struggle with this ramp.
Just as I started past the park I got my turn around notification warning. One of these days, I'll go farther.
Here is a good example of a bad angle picture. That neck fat has got to go!
If you can't make it out, he has a hand cart with the weight bench and an Igloo cooler with his dumbbells. I wish I had taken a picture as he was training.
Here is a picture of my healed leg. Nothing but a little discoloration.
