Day 5: Summer 2013 Drive N Bike — Santa Cruz, CA

Santa Cruz Day One (2)Santa Cruz, CA is definitely one of my favorite cities.  I used to visit Santa Cruz for business two or three times a year in the late 80’s through the mid 90’s.  It has been seventeen years since my last trip to Santa Cruz and nothing has changed — except there are more people.

I had a very full, busy day.  So far, this trip has featured nothing but full, busy days.

Today started like most with an amazing 43 mile bike ride and ended with meeting up with a good friend from Scottsdale and her sister and brother-in-law at the bicycle fitness center.  In between, I conducted some work for my client, wrote a blog or two and took in the sites I love so much about Santa Cruz.

Tomorrow, after a brief early morning bike ride, I am off to Sacramento to reconnect with a former client and make new acquaintances.

Every day that I get to celebrate the life I have — my health, the power of a transformed perspective, connecting with friends, and revisiting a beloved city from  my past — I am reminded how wonderful each today is!

Yesterday is history and tomorrow is not guaranteed — we only have today!  Celebrate, enjoy, make the most of it and be grateful you have it!!
