Isn’t that beautiful? I am so excited! I rode my bike to work this morning, and even with the new clip-in pedals, it was almost without incident.
I made it past the two kinda scary places that involve big trucks. I stopped at all the lights. I was not run over. I got my bike on MAX without killing myself or anyone else. I got my bike off MAX – also safely. I cruised the 1/10th of a mile from the MAX station to my office. I stopped my bike. I could not get my feet out of the pedals. I ran into a fence. I didn’t, however, fall down (because of the fence). My feet FINALLY came out, and I cut my calf on the pedals. Of course, I don’t do this in front of 10 strangers at Pioneer Square. Oh, no. I do it in front of people I work with. People I see on a regular basis. (Well, actually only one person, and to his credit, he didn’t even laugh at me.)
But – tonight, I am riding to downtown to meet the architect. I am planning on sitting outside & having a martini. And then we will ride our bikes home.
And tomorrow, I am running 10 miles w/ my friend the Cheetah (fast like the animal, not someone who is dishonest). And then, I am going to prep my garden space.
Sunday brings a 40-mile bike ride, and then some garden planting.
Monday will bring an exciting new announcement. And probably a short run.
But seriously – did you SEE this?
I’m so glad we’re having a little spring.
