30 minute silent meditation at Buddhist Temple of Marin (but have to admit my not planned plan B was a bit more fun :).
unexpected first: Highway ride commute home on Aprilia, first time ever with open face Supermoto helmet and Amber depth enhancing safety glasses. WILD perception, a whole different world..definitely buying a pair of these!
Lesson at Tech Shop on how to use a 3D Scanner/Printer – Scanned face and will have print tomorrow. Awesome instructor, Ky. *Side note – day started out with bike commute over Golden Gate to SF client. WOW sunrise incredible. (see pics)
OAKLAND ART MURMUR “Saturday Stroll” – Uptown gallery district with fellow trainer and friend, Catherine. Galleries visited: Vessel, The Wall, Warehouse 416, SLATE, Manna, Mercury 20, Creative Growth Art Center, Classiccars West.

*Another first for the day ended up being experiencing ordering a sandwich from the ‘sandwich nazi’. Visited my friend and her husband/their new pup after art stroll and we went to Grinder’s in Montclair village. Hilarious. I asked Peter (the owner of the sandwich shop) if he was ex-military, he claimed he was the next best thing.. “German”. Worth the experience. Sandwich was legit (got turkey/avo), but the ordering process is priceless. http://www.yelp.com/biz/grinders-submarine-sandwiches-oakland
Aerobie Pro Ring Throw with good friend Kylo and successful slide down Mark di Suervo’s art installation — no harm done at all to the art of course!

Last New Year’s rather than a resolution per-say, I decided to do one new thing a day for 100 straight days. It was a blast. Looking back, aside from cell phone pictures, my method of documentation was pretty lame. This year I am going to take on the challenge again and post on this site. We so easily get stuck into our routines of heading to the same trail, restaurant.. even in our own backyards there are places we have yet to tread.
Day 1: It is 11am right now and I am at a local java shack in Tam Junction, 1/4 of a mile from where I live. Hopping on my scooter to head into the city and go to Breakfast of Champions – first time experience. Gotta love San Francisco. To be able to trail run in the morning and then in 20 minutes be dancing here: http://www.spacecowboys.org/
Mission accomplished with friend and colleague Herberto –
