Remember when we wrote essays on what we did for summer vacation? This summer it was cycling, home projects, and staying close to San Diego with family. Took the summer off from any blogging after Climb to Kaiser. Tour de France took priority. Now looking forward to seeing Beijing on television. It’s been 5 years since my last trip there. Didn’t wear a mask when running the roughly 3 miles from the China World Hotel to Tiananmen Square and back along Dongchang’an Street. The experience was amazing.
