Here I was, spending time on the Internet because it was too dark and cold and gloomy to get off my ever-increasing bottom and get on my bicycle for a short 4-mile ride. (But it's so dark! It's so cold! It's so glooooooomy!)
Then I had to go and read Lynne's blog about her ride from Eugene to Beaverton.* (For those of you from elsewhere, she rode 136 miles that day. For those of you from somewhere with a more sensible measuring system, that's 218 kilometers.)
Damn. It's much harder to look my conscience in the eye and tell it that I can't do my simple get-the-chores-done ride.
Done! 4 miles on a bike
*Sorry, Julie, but even though I'd love to stop in for a visit, it ain't gonna be by bike.
