Mt Diablo, Sept 30

It was hot, and there were lots of bees, that all seemed to really like Natalie, but unfortunately that feeling was not mutual.  After I flailed up Bolt Line (10c in the guidebook, but closer to 11c), we tried to get distance from the crowds of people and bees swarming around Amazing Face, but the bees insisted on a long distance relationship, and the climbs on the Middle Tier of Boyscout Rocks weren't so great.  As the sun started to set, we went back to the Lower Tier, where the bees had retired for the night.  Natalie lead up Amazing Face (9 or so), which was her first real sport lead.  She crushed it despite being quite scared.

Things have been extremely busy for me between wedding season, music visualization stuff, and concerts.  It has been over two months since I've been in the Sierras, and I'm not sure when I'll get there next.

JPMorgan Corporate Challenge, Sept 12

I ran 26:55, which was 2 seconds slower than last year!  It was a more comfortable race this year, but I could have started slower.

Breaking the rule, Sept 6

I'm driving to Davis after work for a Wildlife Control show.  This is absurd.  If you are in SF on Friday, you should come to the show at Bottom of the Hill!  We'll be on around 11pm.

Update: The show was was awesome, and everything worked:

Sadly, the show didn't work so well on Friday.  Maybe I'll write about it when it is less of an open wound.
