Stupendous day to hit the road again with my bike! Just a tad on the cool side, but that only helped to keep my sweating down...lol.
I looked a bit kaleidoscopic riding my maroon Wildwood Diamondback wearing my navy workout shorts, tangerine SPARKPEOPLE *yeah!* t-shirt and my Spartan Green Michigan State University biking gloves, a gift from my sister...GO STATE! We're reviving the good old days of Magic Johnson and Gregory Kelser...who took the nationals by storm back when I was an MSU student...woo hoo!
It was fun to take a new route, 18 miles round trip, even if there WERE a couple of GIGUNDO hills which I had forgotten...! A bit more than I probably should have bitten off for my first longer ride of the season, but after a rest on the other end I was ready to go again. Feeling good and SPENT when I arrived home.
I'd like to share a couple of powerful opinions about the recent shootings in my Binghamton community and the connections to the stress of unemployment:
May all 14 who died in the Binghamton shooting rest in peace and may their family and loved ones find the comfort, guidance and solace needed for resolution as well as the ability to reconnect with their own lives.
