My Brain on Road Bike

Blast from the past:
05.02.2012 70 °F

11:31am - Damn. It feels freakin' AWESOME to be on the bike.

11:32am - I think I'm getting sunburnt, already.

11:35am - WTF happened to my right hood/brake?

11:36am - Those bastards at the bike shop, seriously. seriously. you can't put a bike together right? isn't that your joooobbbbb?

11:38am - I miss New England Bicycles. If Brian was here right now I'd be riding faster, come on aubs, pick it up a bit.

11:44am - Explosive expleatives at the fatty bizotch who almost t-boned me on her way to pick up her extra super frosty mcbeef shake.

11:50am - New series of curse words for the suited up grease ball who cut me off coming out of Kentucky-McArby-Bell.

11:52am - Serious debating on what the most dangerous time of day to be cycling is and who is the most commonly offending demographic.

12:01pm - RAIN. Glorious rain. Ouch. Damn, is that hail? It stings. Ouch. Ahh. WTF!?

12:08pm - That was weird. Good thing I stopped at the gas station to cop a trashbag for my camera.

12:10pm - I should take some pictures. Eh. In a little while

12:12pm - Oh you sneaky bizotch. (woman who passed me pulling into garden of the gods)

12:16pm - Wow. Chicks out here can ride. This ain't massachusetts that's for sure.

12:18pm - Eh. Pretty close to catching up.

12:20pm - WHOA. Racoon? No way. That was definitly a wolverine. (Then I continued to make a mental list of all the things I knew about wolverines....that was a very short list)

12:28pm- Finally riding somewhere beautiful. F-you colorado springs and your 6 lane roadways.

12:40pm - Holy head-wind batman.

12:45pm- Took 4 right hand turns around a block for the sack of a science experiment. How is it possible that there was a headwind on 3 of the 4 streets??? Still puzzled on that one.

1:00pm - I miss water. rivers. streams. lakes. ponds. sigh. this is the freakin' desert.

1:01pm - Burning flesh on my arms.

1:04pm - Pouring rain, mud puddles.

1:06pm - Rain sound on a tent rain fly. Take me there right now.

1:10pm - How is it that I get lost every freakin' ride I take? This is a god-damn grid system.

1:11pm - God country. Gun country. How is the springs a combination of both?

1:13pm - blank. blank. blank. blank

1:20pm - I'm soooo glad that I don't have any babies. (brought on by the crying baby and freaking out toddler on the sidewalk with a miserable mommy....not just a random thought. well. actually, i guess I do have that random thought frequently)

1:22pm - 3 years ago I was in the Galapagos getting ready to go home. I miss Amanda. I miss juice box wine, sea lions and reading dozens on novels on the beach while my skin crisps to 27 shades my normal color. I miss Gaby, she's a flippin' teenager now. How crazy is that.

1:25pm - I should run away there again. Yes. That will happen.

1:33pm - climb. climb. climb. woof. more climbing.

1:40pm - home at least. give me my peanut butter cheerios. yup. that's right, two of my favorite things are now combined into one. holllaaaaa

Hmm....A little bit of a mental contrast I would say.

Anyways. Cheers to the trails!
Off-season is treating me well.
Yummy food, lots of beer and time to get all stir crazy for 2013.

7mile obstacle race tomorrow with Justin, in our back yard. Yup. #wincolorado.

Here's to peace, buffalo chicken, and sweat pants
