Today was a gorgeous day and I enjoyed it thoroughly with a 25 mile bike ride, including a new part of the trail I had not ridden before. There was an incident with a snake in which I had to take my feet off the pedals to evade his raised neck, but my heart didn't even beat too fast. And the snake was fine, too. I saw him slither off just fine. So neither of us was worse for the wear. I did see lots of pretty birds, butterflies, wild flowers. I took my MP3 player with me, but never turned it on. I was just enjoying the crickets and the birds and the other sounds of nature. Although I like my new camera, I kind of wish I had a smaller one that I could carry more easily to take pictures on runs and rides. Many someday.
It's good to set long term goals, right? Well here is some inspiration for a goal to be reached in years to come. Video of 90+ year old men in a sprint race:
Oh, I want to be running for 3 more decades! Now that is one worthy goal!!
