Adventure: Training


All the fuel I needed.

Okay, a few observations from today’s ride. Met a guy named Lance. Not THAT Lance just another. Two people walked right out in front of me, one man, one woman, both on mobile phones. One dog attempted to bite me. Owner was on mobile phone. Almost got hit by one mail truck. No idea if driver was on phone. Saw one hipster kid on fixie, with headphones, go straight through a red light and miss being killed by approximately ten feet. He doesn’t even know he almost got hit nor did he hear the brakes or the driver yelling at him.(It was remarkable actually.) Saw three fixie guys in a row, all in black head to toe, no helmets, all three with man buns. I felt good today, again. Back to backs are an unknown for me, but I’m feeling good. Lots of sun. Lots of flowers. I’m posting these posts because this kind of activity is very much tied to the other activities in my life. There is no photography, or bookmaking, without the balance of being in shape. If I was healthy this would be equally true. I also think activities make us more well rounded people. So get out there, regardless of fitness level, and go for it. Run, walk, hike, bike, swim, meditate, all the above.

By the way, Chocolate Mint Gu is the best thing I’ve ever tasted in my life. I’m lucky they don’t make this in five pound bags or I’d be 300 pounds. It’s fantastic!

    1. Wim,
      You seem to walk a lot. I see your work on IG. Biking is great. Cover more ground and little impact.

  1. Haha… Yes maybe but I also like to eat and drink a delicious wine. Believe me I need the exercise! See you on the road!

  2. I absolutely agree & although I am older than dirt, try to get in my 100 or so miles a week. Here in Florida riding a bike is the only way to go, as far as I am concerned – just gets too darn hot for walking. I am fortunate to live a few feet from a bike trail that, connects with the St. Marks Trail, and if I want to, I can go 40 miles, round trip, all on bike trails.

    1. Christian,
      Those trails are fantastic. Florida roads have historically been somewhat unkind to cyclists so trails are the way to go.
