Today I rode my bike; ordinarily that statement would come as no surprise. But unfortunately for the past couple of weeks, I’ve been battling congestion, sore throats, fatigue – cold symptoms that just wouldn’t quit! – and I’ve not been riding.
On my final work day this week, I’m happy to report that I bike commuted. In the wind and sleet, I smiled all the way and enjoyed breathing in the crisp air. I wished I could just keep going.
It’s the best gift ever – not the ride – but the restored health so that I can ride.
Even the green machine got “dressed” up for the holidays, sporting a red and gold holiday bow from my mom.
