    As I'm in the shower practically crying my hands, feet and ankles are turning purple.
    Long story short, my ankles, feet and hands were swollen all night long.
    Thats the worst. It happened to me a few times last winter. Run room temperature or cooler water over your feet for a few minutes and gradually increase the temperature. Still hurts, but not "holy **** my toes are gonna fall off!" bad.

    1/31 - 8.2 miles
    First ride in 4 weeks. Mainly rode thru nearby neighborhoods in west side of Joliet. A few side streets still had some snow/ slush but were pretty manageable.

    1/29 17 miles total. Took my SS to work and back. A bit cold at 20F w/ a 20 mph headwind on the way home, but felt nice to be out on the bike.

    1/31 15.2 miles. Would've gone longer, but didn't go out until late and quickly started to run out of daylight. First time outdoors on the road bike this year. Felt AWESOME to be out there.

    35.6 miles in 2h 43min today from Norton Shores, MI to Muskegon State Park Campground and back.
    It was windy, cold and wet. My toes were frozen in my Lake shoes, but not as bad as in my Sidi's. Next cold ride I'm going to use toe warmers.

    I go to grab my clothes for todays ride, and I don't have any clean shorts. Going to miss the ride. Grr. So by the time I got them washed and dried thinking i was going to enjoy the weather on a solo ride, its too late because the cavs/pistons game is on.

    So, it was 42 degrees and sunny and I didn't ride.

    I didn't ride today, but I did ride on Monday. And on Tuesday. And on Wednesday. And on Thursday. And a nice little ride on Friday for which I had to bust out the arm warmers as the temps dipped down to 60 degrees and it was raining.

    Rode 30 miles today on the track bike. Ran into a teammate from last year at mile 15 and had a quick chat.

    My knee is healed.

    Very good. Hopefully I'll get fitted some time this week and avoid another injury all together.

    I lowered my seat a scoche and tilted my bars up just a little for today's ride. Felt really good as well. I had lot's of power and no knee issues besides a little residual "calf pull"

    95 miles on the fixed gear around the Emerald Necklace. By some unexplainable force I made it out alive.

    2/2- First of all, F Punxsawtawny Phil. Second of all I was so sad I didnt ride yesterday, I rode today. It was very exciting.

    In tremont I nearly ran over a cute little puppy walking into the street hiding behind a parked car. Leash law anyone?
    On detroit I had to dodge a snowball infront of the deliquent school.
    Rode past Spin and had the willpower to not stop my ride to drool over SR11
    Had close calls with 3 cars.
    But it was a sunny day and every cloud had a silver lining. 34 miles.

    30 some more miles. I cam so close to breaking in the new Giant, but I didn't I ran into another one of my old teammates.

    I love my track bike, it lets me accelerate like crazy in a sprint, and it climbs shallow grades quicker than anything else.
    I can't wait until I get my new one.

    It was nice having you in the posse. The next time you show up and ride with us you'll become a "Junior Deputy", the third time with the group and you are "Deputized".
