    Mellowing Out?

    Right, then...

    Tonight after work, I did 30 mile bike ride to take advantage of daylight savings time. In the old days, I used to go out and get piss drunk to take advantage of St. Paddy's Day. I must be mellowing out...

    On the same note, one hill that gives me particular grief on the Raleigh (lowest gearing is 34 x 25) was notably easier, tonight. I used to stop about .25 mi from the final turn to a) catch my breath, and b) keep from vomiting - tonight, I happily avoided b. Now the goal is to make it all the way to the turn w/o stopping.

    ...this might need to be a weekly thing...

    I didn't go for a ride this evening but I did go for a walk and passed by several outdoor patios that were in full blown St. Paddy's day celebrations. It brought back lots of memories for me too.

    Congrats on the hill climbing break through.

    St. Patty's isn't such a big deal to me anymore. I forgot to wear green though, lucky me, my socks have a green strip across the toe (yes, I took my shoes off to avoid pinches...)... Hit the gym, played some racquetball and worked out in the pool... Didn't even have a beer.
