That's More Like It
Waking up to a sunny day totally starts the day off right. No wonder folks who live in sunnier climates tend to be more laid back and many of the folks in my neck of the woods, including myself, our wound up tight Cameron Frye style.
of coal up his ass, in two weeks you'd have a diamond."
There's something to be said when you start a ride on a cool (40 degree) day, those first few deep breaths that sort of singe your lungs and nose. Feels good. It's sort of a slap in the face from Ma Nature to say "Get movin' asshole!!! You wanted f*cking sun, you got f*cking sun, now ride you piece of shit!!" Not sure if I've ever mentioned it, but I always imagine Mother Nature as a real foul mouthed, ball busting domineering type woman. But again, I've said too much.
So as not to disappoint "mother" I did kick it in, and had a nice ride. Been a couple of rides since I did my standard 2 hour loop, so it was nice to do it again and see some progress. I'm longing for dirt, but didn't have the time to make the haul to Boyce, and I was unsure of the trail conditions. After today's warm temps, they might be ok, tomorrow if I can get there before the rains come back. If not, no worries, I'll be getting 5+ hours of dirt come Saturday.
Once home, I walked over to B-Man's school, picked him and up and we walked home so as to enjoy the sun. Then we headed to park where he had Tuesday Afternoon Crits.
I leave you with some words of wisdom...When you are getting ready for a ride the preferred order for getting dressed should be something like, apply Bag Balm, base, bibs, jersey, socks. NOT, I repeat NOT apply Bag Balm, Socks, etc., etc., OR you end up with this....
Sweet Jesus! Look at that! Figures double basted all the goodies today too due to last night's dinner and a pot of coffee rocking my caboose this morning. As soon as I sat down, I was like "oh snap!" I think it sort of looks like stencil art. Too bad it's my freaking ass on our freaking bed!! I really thought Wifey was gonna shit, but she took my idiocy in stride. I think I MIGHT see an outline of Elvis in there somewhere.
