    Birthday Ride Then and Now

    Ok - So another year - and it's my Birthday! - To celebrate my bierthday I went out for a 2 hour ride with a friend on one of my favorite routes called Silk Sheets. My friend, Wayne, does not work out much - nor ride much- so with the sweltering heat (feel like 98) it was a tough ride for him. Me, i have a cold and it was a bit tough as well. We stopped for a rest and I felt nauseous. BBut it was awesome to have a b ike - and be out riding to celebrate the day. Last year I rode 50 miles on our flat trail (Silver Coemt) and was so proud. This year - I am just happy to get out and enjoy the weather, company and ride.


    Ok what does it mean if I am going to hit the couch for a nap before my friend makes me dinner tonight for the bday? Am I old (46 look 38)....Probably just a combo of the sun and my cold...ok nap time then on with the party!

    Well, if nobody else is going to say it....

    Hope you feel better, and 46 is not that old.

    Do not feel bad about a relatively short ride. You just finished riding accross a state, riding 500 miles in one week. That is a fantastic achievement! So you get a cold and need to take it easy for a few days. Colds and flue bugs happen... Give your self a little rest, and look back with pride on what you achieved in the past year

    Happy birthday!

    I'm sorry for responding so late, but Happy Belated B-day!! I understood what you were going through. I live in So. California but I'm originally from Savannah. Anyway, that took a lot for you to go out in that weather with a cold. My hat's off to you!!

    Another one late to the party... I'm not far behind you (5 months) and just starting out, but I don't feel old. Happy Birthday to you.
