Someone actually stopped me this morning to say that I was “an inspiration” for walking all the time. Apparently he’s seen me every day for a long time and was impressed that I’ve kept it up. Wild. I guess I can hope it will inspire him to not drive to work every day, stopping at Starbucks on the way. (I walk past four Starbucks outlets every day, which by itself is a little disturbing.)

Normally the people I run into as I get close to Caltrain (this is before 7 am mind you) are either bleary-eyed Adobe employees or whacked-out homeless.
