ALONE TIME

Images5
The Loveman woke me up on Sunday morning and asked me if I was going to do the club ride.  This of course meant that he would be home with the monkeys (score!).  I told him I was going to ride by myself and he kind of shook his head.  He said "You have a lot more to write about when you ride with other people".  Yes, he is correct and yes, I love riding with the club but I just wasn't in the mood. 

I felt like I needed to get away from everyone and everything and be alone for a little while.  The Loveman prepped my bike as he always does (I know I'm spoiled) and I prepared for a fabulous ride.  I had on my favorite red jacket that matches Slick perfectly as it brings out the red accents in his paint job.  Slick and I were looking good and I was feeling good. 

We got out on the road and I felt great.  Slick impressed me with his ability to handle the road like no other bike I have ever been on.  He is absolutely amazing.  I did about 27 miles and not once did I ever feel like I was riding a bike.  I felt like I was on cloud 9 just clearing my head.  I didn't have a care in the world.

It's amazing how much I accomplished on my ride.  I completed my to do list for the week, worked through the monkeys' spring activity schedules, figured out my work and show schedule, picked summer camps and road trips for the kids and enjoyed the scenery.  Fortunately I never had to worry about the bike because it rides itself.  No lie.  I jest you not.  The Trek Madone 6.5 WSD is beyond my wildest dreams.  I'm so glad Slick and I found each other.  He's so good at relaxing and calming me down. 

Now lets all take a deep breath together.  Ahhhhhhhhhhhh......

You make it sound easy sister. I hope my road bike will make it easier for me. I can't wait.
