Can we talk about cycling for a second? Can we talk about how I don’t suffer from daily anxiety anymore? Can we talk about how happy it makes me? Can we talk about my calves? Because I want to talk about it.
I went for an afternoon ride today during a slow period at work. I clocked in over 13 hilly miles at an average of 18.9 mph. (Thank you, Strava.) And on this particular loop, I placed 18th out of 126 people. Men and women. I’m 2nd in the women’s category.
And I am openly bragging about it because I want to encourage my readers and my friends to keep trying new things. In June 2012, I hadn’t been on a bike ride in nearly ten years, and now, outside of friends and family, it is the best thing in my life.
God damnit, I love that bike.
Try something new this month. It could change your life.
