Seems I've been in a rut lately. Haven't been on the bike enough and life's been wearing me down a bit, like a worn-out sneaker where the tread is missing in places, not enough grip, slipping.
My machine waits for me.
I need to make some changes and get some motivation to get on the bike more: my bike is my gateway drug. I need to let it take me places where where I can get away and let it file down my anxiety and angst. Racing is not for me so much, just long miles. But long miles take time....now where's that extra daylight?
Everybody needs a (healthy) release of some sort. Make sure you find yours.
