Walkin’ back home: Day 2

I didn’t dawdle. I didn’t take the road less traveled. I walked directly to Pleasant Hill BART, got on a train within 6 minutes, and made it to my Berkeley home within an hour and a half.

That’s a darn sight better than my 2 hours and 30 minutes commute this morning. I even managed to squeeze in a stop at the grocery store – right on my route – and pick up some lettuce.

It was really humbling tonight when I passed a sharply dressed older gentleman holding a number of bags and walking with the careful assistance of a cane. He moved painfully slow, shuffling inch by inch. Watching him made my inner whiny voice shut up but fast.

Regardless, I’m wiped and need to hit the showers and then start plotting my Day 3. See you then.
