"You've got brains in your heads,
you've got feet in your shoes.
You can go
any direction you choose." -Dr. Seuss
As I rode my bike 7 miles along the Fort Frazier Trail on a glorious, sunny central Florida day, I read the quotations on the poles. I'd read this one before, but today it spoke to me and stayed with me. Truly, I choose my direction. That seems to be what SparkPeople is all about: setting the direction. Sometimes you start small, but you start. You go the right direction.
As I contemplated that truth, I also set a personal best. My first ride on the trail I rode at 8.5 miles per hour. Today I made just over 7 miles in half hour - 14 miles per hour! I rode a little more -- gently and just for fun -- after that, too. It's not hard. You just have to choose the right direction.
