8 Great Reasons

A few reasons why this mornings bike workout rocked:
  1. It was my first ride of the season (for shame!)
  2. Averaged just shy of 20 MPH
  3. The sound my bike shoes make when I clip in is hot (or is that haute, or perhaps hawt?)
  4. Keeping pace with, and in several cases, passing vehicular traffic
  5. Soaring heart rate pounding up Harlem Hill
  6. My half grin / half grimace that comes only with hard effort on a bike
  7. The wind roaring in my ears
  8. Dropping guys on ludicrously expensive bicycles (“nice bike, you should learn how to ride it”)
  9. Because 8 great reasons isn't enough, seeing my good friends Yvonne and Eddie running over the 59th Street Bridge
  10. And one more for good measure... I found chain grease in my ear. Sweet!

"While the fates permit, live happily; life speeds on with hurried step, and with winged days the wheel of the headlong year is turned."

Hey - you missed "seeing Yvonne". jk.

you looked good out there. I was dying in the humidity so your 'good job' helped me out a lot!

Josh said...

Good Lord, Yvonne! You are absolutely right!

Adding a 9th reason now!
