Anh Wetzel, Technical Specialist reports it was a perfect weather for riding bike. I went on a 20 miles bike ride; exploring the Wissahickon Trail in Philadelphia. The park is a serene trailway, giving an out of the world peace of mind experience from the hustle-&-bustle life of living in a city. Riding my bike along the creek is so relaxing. I find it hard to believe that I'm still in the city.

Here’s a picture of me (on the left) and my race buddy basking in the glow of another PR.
Zach Panther (Software Engineer, Bothell) ran the Hero’s Half in Everett, WA with his wife Shannon and good friends Brad and Becky.
