After your first mile, you feel like you're near death;

You think you're strong enough for that 25 mph headwind until you turn the corner and almost get blown backwards, but all your neighbors saw you leave and you're too proud to go back home;

Apparently it's logging truck and cement truck day and nobody told you.

Yup! I had that lousy ride yesterday. Temp 35 F, 20-25mph headwind. I've broke out my winter clothes for the ride but the wind caught me off guard and I had to come back home after 15 minutes. Sometimes, the ride just doesn't worth it. Where is Spring??
That's why I took Spin class at the gym instead (nm)ColnagoFE

After being 78 degrees on Friday, it was 20 degrees Sunday morning. Oh..and windy. I went to bed at 1am the night before after too much food and a few drinks. My 4yr old then woke me up at 3:30 with a bad dream and 6:30am for good.

At 9am (when my wife dragged her butt out of bed), I actually put on the shorts, jersey, etc and went downstairs to get the bike. I thought about it for a while, then said "screw it". I averted the lousy ride before the lousy ride.....

The age old question for parents: Why do children wake up at dawn on weekends, but I can't drag their butts out of bed on schooldays????? Just goes to show that life isn't fair.
