It was an actual blind date! Who woulda thunk!
April was training with Total Body Fitness for her next triathlon, while across the city, Brian was a personal trainer at 24 Hour Fitness. It just so happened that we had a common, busy-body friend named Robin that decided we might be good for each other.
As April was removing her wetsuit after a long open-water swim at Folsom Lake, Robin came up behind her and asked if she was single before April realized what was about to happen. April said she was indeed single and found herself roped into a "group" bike ride the next week to meet this "great guy" that trained Robin at the gym.
The week passed by and slowly everyone backed out of the bike trip until the only people that actually showed up that morning was April, Brian and our chaperone, Robin. The ride was great until Brian popped a tire without any patch kit to spare. About an hour later we were back on the trail, limping along until we reached the bike shop for a real repair.
Once back at the cars, we discussed Brian's upcoming hike up Half Dome. He invited both Robin and April on yet another group outing. Yup! You guessed it, the day arrived and it turned out to be just me and Brian on an epic 19 hour trip to Yosemite and back. The journey is still in progress...
