So much for only having one class on Thursdays. Today was jam packed with class, middle school, meeting, work, and then another meeting, which brought me from about 8:30-4:30. What are you to do after a long day? Head out on a bike ride, that’s what. I was a bit hesitant about going, knowing that I could easily fill the time with schoolwork, but I headed out and was SO glad I did…it seems like it always works that way. So I will live you with a “numbers” recap of my ride:
1 – squirrel I almost ran over (seriously)
1 – piece of Girls on the Run clothing I was wearing, although I did bring my GOTR travel mug with me everywhere today, so I guess that counts for something?! Happy Girls on the Run Spirit Day! https://www.facebook.com/events/162010893994553/permalink/162010897327886/
2 – bugs I (knowingly) swallowed during the ride…I can count that towards my protein intake for the day, right?!
2 – Boat launches I made it to – once I reached one, I had to extend my loop to include the next!
3 – turkeys in the woods that nearly jumped out at me
5 – chickens hanging out by the side of the road
10 – other bikers and even more runners
20.4 – miles covered
Ongoing – The amount of time I spent admiring the beauty around me and giving thanks for this amazing place and the ability to explore it on bike, foot, etc. I am truly blessed.
