OK, I have to come clean. I have been planning on riding my bike for many many weeks now. My last ride was the 13th of March. I would make all these plans to get out and ride, but for some reason when it came right down to it, the motivation just wasn't there.
Today, it finally was and I got out for a ride. OK, it was a short one, under 3 miles, but this is a positive step. Part of my trepidation was reading about several people who have been hit by cars in the last few months. I definitely didn't and don't, want to become someone's hood ornament.
Finally today I felt that I just had to go for it and I did and I enjoyed it.
I think it's time to start getting up at 4:00 am and riding while its cool and the traffic is light. Hopefully in the near future, after we move, I can find some decent bike paths that get me away from traffic where I will feel a whole lot safer.
In other news, today was also the weigh out for the Biggest Winner competition in the corporate challenge and I am proud to say that the scale showed a 28 lb. loss for me. I'll certainly take it and now its all about continuing the journey.
So, now that I did it, its your turn to...
GET ON YOUR BIKE AND RIDE!!!!!!
