Good & Bad

The Good: Yesterday, on my way from work to the chiropractor (who's phenomenal*, by the way), I managed to awe a couple of high school boys with the speed I took a flat bit. They caught up to me at a light in order to express said awe.

The Bad: My youngest was having some anxiety issues or something so hardly slept last night. This meant I hardly slept, which meant I was too exhausted to ride into work. There's always next week.

*Molly @ ProC.A.R.E. is one of, if not the, best chiropractor I've used.

Friday, Friday

Well, I didn't ride yesterday because my legs hurt when I got up (classic overdoing it pain). So, today I made it to Starbucks faster than I ever have, and that included time spent going out of my way to redeem my Einstein Bros Free Bagel Fridays coupon (which I'm enjoying as I write this).

A Heavenly(?) Birthday Present...

So, the heavens decide to disgorge rain on me on my ride home yesterday (which also happened to be my 30th Birthday). Sad thing is, if I had left 15 min earlier (my colleague was already fine with me leaving 1 hr early due to my BDay, so 1 h 15m wouldn't have mattered) I would have missed it entirely. On a better note, I'm pretty sure it was one of my fasted rides home.

PS - You can't tell it from the pictures but my pants are completely soaked.

Yesterday kind of sucked

It was hot and windy on the way home, and my bike was clanging like crazy. After 2-3 miles I figured out what happened, apparently one of the bolts securing my rack to the axle braze-ons fell out. I had to go to three different hardware stores to find a match (though that's my own fault as the one I knew would have a match was more out of the way so I wasted a lot of time and energy going to two that were only partly out of way).

Oh, and I'm thirty today.

Week's off to a great start

I was a beautiful ride in this morning. I was exhausted, but I'm really glad I rode rather than drove. I thought I might even be a bit late, but wasn't. Even had time to stop to get coffee.
