This waterway is heavily utilized by boaters. You see Clear lake is home to the third largest fleet of recreational boats in the United States. Because of all the boat traffic seen, a steep and extreme high bridge was built. And until my run, I did not realize that the south side is steeper than the north side. I also didn't realize that cars whizzing by at 50 mph, that are less than 3 feet from you, cause alot of hot wind. But I loved it. I loved the way my thighs burned on the incline and the reward of going downhill immediately after the burn. My sister and I took a picture at the top of the bridge from my phone, which in turn caused my Nike+ to stop recording and my wireless headphones to unlink. So I am smiling in this picture but moments later I was just frustrated.
Now the bridge is less than two miles from my place but at least 30 miles from my sister's house. Again, I am truly blessed to have a sister that would drive that far, that early so that she can run the bridge with me. Isn't she awesome? There are no words to describe my gratitude. I am just truly blessed.
