I've been ill almost this whole year. Cold, cough, flu. It's been great! I don't know when I've had such fun.
Today was the first time in recent memory that I haven't had a sore throat. I needed coffee beans, the roaster is only four miles away...back on the bike!
The milestone was nothing huge. I was just riding, observing things around me, and...that's all I was doing. Normally I would have been concentrating on how much power I was putting out, on how my breathing was...but instead, I was just riding.
Of course, this moment of Zen was broken by my noticing that I wasn't noticing.
Well, that and that the theme song from the 1970's "Spider-Man" cartoon was running through my head.
And now, a gratuitous picture of a bike (a VSF Fahrradmanufaktur T-1000).
|Yes, it's black. Like every other German bike that I've seen.|
