I have fallen SOOOO far off the wagon!
I bought myself a new Surly Long Haul trucker, as I was afraid old Jake wouldn't
be able to handle 320 lbs so well. I've ridden it a couple times, and it felt nice...
especially after I mounted a Brooks saddle. I live 2 or 3 miles (hilly miles) from work,
and am trying to get up the nerve to make the trip on the bike.
Back in the day, when I was riding centuries on a regular basis (Hotter'nHell in about 5 hours),
there wouldn't have been any question. I hardly ever drove anywhere. Now... it ain't so easy.
Really REALLY hard to get motivated, especially when I remember how well I rode before. I'll
start down the road, already tired by the first mile, and can only think of how badly I suck.
