Whimp Out

5° and clear but it is just too damn cold for me tonight. I'd planned to ride home but after a trying day at work I just couldn't face the logistics of gearing up for the bike ride home. I knew once I got on the road I'd be fine but I just didn't feel like it for some reason. All the other times I've wanted to just grab the car keys I've overcome the temptation. But not tonight. I also rationalized that I didn't feel like subjecting my bike to the abuse. It is a pretty rugged bike by I'm not sure Cannondale designed it for such extremes. So I'm whimping out. Friday it is going to be in the teens so maybe I'll develop some guts by then.

I DEFINITELY hear you! I have a pretty wimpy 3.1 mile (one way) ride these days, but can absolutely see that a 23 mile jaunt might be pretty daunting. Especially in these nigh-subzero conditions. In any event, it's overwhelmingly inspiring seeing that you're still keeping at it!

Maybe I'll play hooky soon and draft you on the Lakefront one morning. ;)
