A picture-perfect day for an outside ride

36 miles in the fresh air and sunshine.
It was a great day for a bike ride today. I filled my bottles, pumped my tires, finally took off the sticker from my 70.3 in August, and headed out.

I was a bit wobbly at first but completed 36 miles at a decent-for-me pace. I looked in my logs, and it was a full 0.7 mph faster than the first time I hit this route last year. Baby steps.

I even remembered how to drink without crashing and descended a couple of hills without freaking out, although I'm still scared to ride in aero. Again... baby steps.

Overall, just a great day to be alive, outside and pedaling. Yay cycling!
