I’ve been feeling more alive lately. I thank my bicycle for this sensation. It turns me into a time traveler. It changes the way I view the world. It enhances my awareness.
I’ve got this new mantra: ride happy. It’s helps me to say this before I get on the bike and even a few times during the journey. There are a lot of cars out there. We share the road. Sometimes I get in their way and sometimes they get in my way. We are all just traveling somewhere along the way.
I rode home from a friend’s house late last night. It was cool and quiet. The streets were empty. I hope you know the feeling…
Run 31 = 7+7+9+8 (400 year to date – aiming for 1000 in 2007)
Bike 30 = 10+10+3+7 (1,170 y.t.d. – aiming to drive way less)
