Is anyone else feeling hot? Is it just global warming or are the weather gods having a great time messing with nature? In any case, I have to say that here it is - 9:25pm - and I'm sitting outside on my back patio with a sleeveless top on and a skirt! WTF?? We've got several candles lit, we're sitting in lawn chairs with our laptops, I'm enjoying a white wine spritzer on ice, tunes playing on the iPod and I can't believe I've got to get up and go to work in the morning!! What is wrong with this picture people??
Anyhoo this is supposed to be a cycling update. Over the past couple of months I've been quietly pedalling away in the basement headed to all points southeast - Philly (I'm ready for those cheese steaks Judy) and a whole bunch of other places nearby (I'd list them but that would mean getting up, going inside and getting the map on which I've marked my journey. So suffice it to say I don't want to get up again. Once it turns cold again, and it will turn cold again, then I'll be in my Room of my Own blogging away and I'll get the map out.
I just updated my mileage tracker in my sidebar and I've actually gone 25km past Philly on my way to ?? Stay tuned for further, more explicit, updates. Yes, I'm lazy. Except when it comes to my bike. Last week I unwrapped my outdoor bike, filled the tires with air and hit the streets. What a blast! I've racked up 80km in 4 rides since last Thursday and I'll be out again tomorrow as the thermometer is going up into the high 20'sc (high 80'sF). I find (you'll find this interesting Mark) that I have fewer hot flashes when I'm pedalling along creating a nice breeze! However, keep your mouth closed as the bugs are back. Something hard smacked me in the middle of my forehead today! OWWW!
So that's my highly detailed update for today - I hope you enjoyed it :)
