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!
