I bought my first real bike yesterday, and I'm super excited! A little scared, but excited all the same. I went for my first ride today - about 20 miles on the I45 feeder road here by my house. I know that sounds crazy, but there is NO traffic on it once you pass our road. I didn't see a single vehicle. Perfect place to ride except that you have to pass a rest area. Truckers galore, and they made sure I knew they saw me..if you know what I mean. Last time I do that ride. By myself at least. I gotta find some good places to ride.
I'm still fightin' the upper respiratory crap, but I ran today anyway. I HATE resting! I made it 3 miles, but it sounded like the entire emphysema ward coughing in unison. I'm going to try again tomorrow at the park. Hopefully Ken will take it easy on me!
