If you think I ran that far you are high on crack.
I wasn’t going to post AGAIN today (I rarely do two-a-days; who has the freaking time?), but I had to share pictures from a morning bike ride today.
When you are stuck in your head and overwhelmed with crap (and forgetting to focus more on the cone), it’s time to hit the road. On the bike, in your running shoes, whatever. There is no better cure for funkiness, PMS’ing, being hungover or whatever ails you than getting out and moving. Really. It changes your whole perspective, your whole mood. So, if you’re not feeling like it, trust me, you will be invigorated. You will never regret a workout.
It started here:
We hit the road and did a favorite route: the Fruit Loops. This involves a ride up to Lyons, Colorado, then two loops in the foothills. I think the “fruit” came in because there used to be orchards in these parts, but I could be making that up. I like to pretend it has to do with the cereal.
Today I perfected the art of riding my bike at 18 mph and taking pictures. That’s why they suck and are blurry. Now I’ll be quiet and just show you:
Look at me! I’m just happy to be in a blue shirt on my bike!
Me too! Look at my laugh lines! Aren’t they sexy?
I always wondered what I looked like from behind.
Love that the Aspen trees are starting to change. They are the most unreal golden color.
There was a ton of bear crap on this road, but I thought the picture would come out too dark. Ken said I was the only person he knew who needed the correct lighting for poop. Yep, I’m a perfectionist that way I guess.
Told you it was a good ride.
Does getting out and moving and sweating improve your mood as much as it does mine?
