Life On Two Wheels

Along the river and toward the mountains a morning shadow shimmers across the road. The rays of the first light jet through the trees and across a figure gliding upon the road. His breath trails in short spurts, petrified as it hits the icy air. All is quiet except the slight sound of the athlete as he summons himself for yet another days work. Soon the rest of the world will bustle with life as well and the brief simplicity of cyclist and nature will disappear into the everyday struggle of life in full motion; the errands and intervals, the appointments and intersections, and the deadlines and finish lines OutPaceTheRace

Alive 'n kick'n

North Bend, WA
Wednesday, May 03, 2006

The antibiotics kicked in quite quickly & I only ended up having two days completely off the bike, so only two days of complete and utter on the couch sickness. It looks like the weathers turning to spring now too; today is 70 degrees without a cloud in the sky. I’ve only done one day on the trainer this week (3hrs) because the rain was off and on. Since I attribute my sickness to the rain, I’ve decided to stick it out in doors for now on when it rains. Maybe I won’t get sick that way, I’ll also where a hazmat suit around to avoid rogue diseases ‘n such- I presume that that’d be a bit cumbersome though…
