Don't Make Change too Complicated: Just Begin!

Who Knew I Would be Elated Getting Back into Spandex?

.....but, let me tell you I was elated... My first day back on the bike after the accident! It was a glorious day and I decided to at least get in some cardio and speed in the short 5.73 miles that I put in at the command of my therapists...well really......, the command was for 5...but I wanted to do 8-10....so 5.73 is still compliance! LOL.

Anyway, it is too soon to tell how the body has coped with this ride...I rode in the Open Space and I am certain the nicest people ride the open space...it never fails that I meet the kindest people. I handed out my new flyer for my new ride in Lake Tahoe for the Leukemia Society and had lots of great conversations with cyclists and runners of all persuasions!

My bike is rolling around in the back of my new Kia Sportage...so I will have to do something about that. I have great trunk room in this car...and that is why I bought it. If you could have seen me doing 30 minute "drive bys" with my salesperson at Car Max...I could not stand up very well....but I could carry my tape measure...and the poor guy had to measure the trunk this way and that and fold the seats up and down for me...and I bought the car to fit the bike...and that probably became to joke at Car Max...."Here she comes again...she needs a car for her bike!

Anyway, it was a great ride and I am thankful that I am finally back in the out of doors riding on the beauty of the earth!
