I "hate" cycling, but love showers
Last Saturday I did my first century of the season doing a loop out past Boston's 495 through Hudson, Bolton, Harvard and Westford and back into Boston. At mile 50ish I was going up a hill and the forecast showers decide to become fairly heavy rain for about 15 mins. I was having a good ride, but at that point I thought "Why am I out here doing this?". After I got home I had a warm shower and as the heat seeped into me, and I washed the combination of road dirt and salty dried sweat off my face I felt great having completed the season's first 100 miles.
Then I realized I only do the cycling so I can feel that good after a shower........
