Time Flies

I can’t believe it’s November already.

Saturday night, I had my best bike ride since returning home. I rode to Tequila Cowboy on Polaris to meet my brother for Halloween. I was dressed as a commuter cyclist complete with blinking red light. It started to rain on the way there and by the time I left, it was coming down pretty hard. I thought it would be cold and miserable, but with the extra layers I had to go slow because I was hot. No cars at all, I was singing in the rain for 10 miles, and soaked by the time I was home. It was awesome.

79 miles on the bike to 59 miles in the truck last week, marking the 4th week in a row that I’ve biked more than driven. The truck is still in the lead, however, 1171-1215. Closing!

Answer to last week’s trivia: the north pole is an ocean that happens to be frozen. The south pole is a continent of land covered with ice. Also, no penguins at the north pole!
