There is Hope!

by on February 24, 2014

Has it really been over 3 weeks since I posted?

Riding has been a grind here in Maryland.  We’ve had snowstorms.  There has been a lot of ice.  It has been cold.

This morning’s ride is the first one in a very long time that just felt good.  It felt really good.  We had 8 riders out.  Our speed was up.  The ice was gone.  Temperatures were in the upper 30s F.  We had daylight for more of the ride.  Why, I might enjoy riding again if this keeps up.  I missed some nice 50-60 degree rides over the weekend, but that’s ok.  What’s critical for me are these morning rides.

The enjoyable ride was tempered by the fact that two friends from DC were hit by a “hit and run” driver on Saturday.  One of those is in shock trauma with severe injuries.  I’ll post about that later.

But the cold temps are returning.  The rest of this week might have ice and snow again.  We are about 2 months out from the Fleche and not only does the attitude have to change, but I need time on the bike!

So far, February has seen me log 298 miles.  Pathetic.
