09/16/2002 Archived Entry: "Luckier Days"
I went for my first bike ride in ten days this afternoon. A general feeling of sickness and dread has kept me off the bike for that long. I really didn't want to go at all. Finally I decided that the smartest thing to do would be to force myself to go.
From the moment my feet touched the pedals I felt good. It was good just to be outside in the woods and feeling the wind in my face. The sky was promising rain all day but I didn't care, I just needed to ride.
No more than thirty seconds after returning to my car it began to downpour. The type of pouring rain that comes in sideways and everything. It seems that luck was on my side today.
When I returned home my roommate's Bowflex had arrived and I signed for it. How exciting!
