I think it was last week that I was rambling on about needing to try to make my life work, just as it is. As the saying goes, if it’s important to you you’ll find a way. If not you’ll find an excuse. With spring really happening, all I want to do is ride my bike and it was time that I stopped finding excuses and started to find a way.
This past week I’ve stepped up my game. Getting more organized at home, getting more done in the mornings and finding whatever ways I can to avoid getting bogged down by life obstacles. By getting to work earlier in the morning and working later after K goes to bed and running about 12 different to-do lists, I’ve found a way to sneak in an hour of mountain biking at lunch on most days. It’s not much, but it sure is worth it.
Town loops last week. Kimmers yesterday. Pipeline on tap for today before the rain arrives. Riding provides the opportunity for reflection and perspective and a chance to step away from the anxiety-driven desk life. I’m itchy for long all day rides, but for now I’ll keep stealing an hour wherever I can.
