got up this morning, checked the weather report:
excellent — sunny and a high near 30. gonna be a nice ride home.
current temp: 1.7
gulp. well, at least there’s no wind. and the temperature will be going up from here, right? by the time i leave for work in 30 minutes, it could be, what, almost 5, maybe even on the way to 10?
bundle up, ride.
brrrrr. i can’t feel my fingers. good thing this is only a twenty minute ride. hey, let’s see if we can make it nineteen… or eighteen… or even fifteen … oof, lungs burning from cold … must. slow. down…. okay, made it — gotta let spouse know:from: cincycling subject: made it … sent: 05 feb ’09 7:34 … just fine. well, my fingertips were complaining, but they didn’t turn any funky colors and i have feeling back already.
