Finally

Back on my bike after a very long time. I think the last time I rode was in July.
I only managed an hour and it wasn't pretty, but I never had to stop and puke and I caught the old woman walking up the little hill! Take that Strava!

In her defense I think her little dog and the shopping cart were holding her back.
I did get to ride in what is cold for me. My feet were cold for about half my shower after. But, that felt great! I really like that Roubaix. After five months of not riding the first pedal stroke felt entirely natural.

I'll be running in Phoenix as getting the bike there is a pain right now. And work looks to again be heated up to full boil. Weekend overtime.
Felt a like a good way to close out the year. Tomorrow I'll spend the day driving.

Happy New Year everyone.Here's to a new year and hopefully a shrinking me.
