hmmm, it might seem sorta strange, but today was the first day I rode a bike to the bank, and then shopping for fresh produce. All the time I spend pedaling, none of it was done for my day to day living. It took me a while, but I got the beater going. maybe the trip today took 20 minutes total. Most of the places I need to go are within 2 miles of my house. I can't tell you how good I feel, not driving my car, I just need to push myself a bit more, to keep it up now.
I like the journey, the act, and I've come to care less about getting somewhere, or achieving something. I don't care if it goes up hill, cold, night, new, strange, the same ,... maybe I should be a mailman?
