Here comes the sun

Let’s talk about the weather. I think we can all agree that spring is around the corner – I smelled it and tasted it this weekend and even heard a few faint chirps from my mom’s favorite bird. All of this energy reminds me of how close the ride is!

On Saturday, I went on a casual ride with some veteran I4K members, and I think I did a good job keeping up for the most part. We explored some of the lone country roads south of campus and I even got a little tutorial about riding my bike safely. I’m now well-versed in the language of cycling hand signals.

After a bout of bronchitis kept me away from working out for a while, I’ve decided it’s time to amp up my training if I want to survive outside of the flatland that is Illinois. Buns of steel here I come!
