    Highlight of my week

    Sorry, I just have to brag... I started riding with a group of men/women on Friday nights a couple weeks ago. I got an e-mail today from a woman I ride with in the group, and in it, she said this:

    "Was thinking of you this week when I was talking to my coach.
    You're such a natural talent on the bike. You hardly look like you're struggling even
    when you're keeping
    up with the Friday night men!"

    Yeah, that was definitely the highlight of my week.

    "Real wars of words are harder to win. They require thought, insight, precision, articulation, knowledge, and experience. They require the humility to admit when you are wrong. They recognize that the dialectic is not about making us look at you, but about us all looking together for the truth."

    No no no, the highlight was the part where she said I'm a "natural on a bike". The other stuff was great too, though.

    And thanks to the rest of you for the compliments!!

    Congratulations. That's quite a compliment. If they say "You hardly look like you're struggling even
    when you're keeping up with the Friday night men!" that probably means you're looking strong even when you're trying to hang in there. With more speed and milage, you'll soon be setting the pace.
    You're just trying to start an argument to show how smart you are.

    I bet the horseback riding gives you a great sense of balance (or vice versa). Great job.
    Next step... USCF license and your first Cat 5 race.

    I'm hoping to race next year! And I think the horseback riding has definitely helped with my bike riding.

    But why would they want to drope you?
