It’s time that I face the fact that I’m going to have to break out the rollers or the trainer. I’ve been sitting here for a week now looking at a freshly built bike and basically all it’s done in the time is sleet… or I’m working when it’s nice out. Naturally!
Something many people know about me is that I HATE riding in rain. It’s odd because I’ll run and do so many other things in the stuff but it drives me nuts to ride in the rain. Maybe too many MS-150’s spent pedaling all day in the rain being cold or too many years battling mountain bikers and horse riders that tear up trail by riding in the rain. I don’t really know what it is. It’s just a fact.
Kera made this sweet new bag for herself. She’s been debating for ages as to what to make. Glad she, finally, did it as I happen to think that it’s her best yet. We’re tossing about ideas for a new, bigger one for me. Granted, I love my Green one (a little of which is in the pic) but I often carry so many teaching supplies or clothes to the gym, etc. That way, maybe I an part with the “Nicaraguan Baby Carrier” as Cotter calls it (big Chrome bag that I’ve had for years).
Anyway, she’ll post more pics on her Flickr site when she gets home, I’m sure.
We are off to Vietnam in 11 days. Wow! Until I wrote that it didn’t hit me how close it is. Cool! I’m taking running stuff with me becasue in 3.5 weeks I’ll go insane if I don’t exercise a few times a week. I experienced it last year when we went to the States and worse when we were in Egypt. ‘Sides, I might get to see some really interesting things along the way.
I’m off to go buy buttons for the cool Bayerisher (Bavarian) sweater vest the Kera knitted me. Then school till late tonight.
