It’s basically October, when the hell did that happen?!? No way is it almost October!
Today we celebrated my younger cousin turning 18…um, again I ask myself, when the hell did that happen?!?! No way is she 18 already!
Time is flying by my friends, hope you are stopping to enjoy all the moments!
Every morning I drive to work with the “Day Walkers”, that is what my husband calls all of us that have to drive to an office everyday. I take the same way everyday. Let me add, I only take the same way because I have tried all different ways and this the fastest route to work (if I don’t hit the trains, yep, trains, I cross 3 railroad tracks heading in). Some days its annoying taking the same way in…day after day but it allows me more time at home in the mornings. And that is totally worth the mundane path to work.
Now to mix it up I have gotten the itch to ride my bike to work. No idea where it came from but it’s just something that I want to do a couple of times a week. I can’t do it everyday because I am an account manager and have to go to clients but on the days where I have nothing planned, why not. It’s only 9 miles from house to work so 18 miles a round trip is nothing.
Last weekend Colin and I did a run to see the best way for me to take in and time about home long it would take. There is only one section that is kind of petrifying. No sidewalk or bike path along the road. The only space to ride is just a couple of feet wide and the semis, cars and trucks are right there. Not to mention, that part of the ride would be before the sunrises. But whatever right!!
We made the ride on Sunday and it took us 45 minutes to get there. Timing worked out because it was about time for lunch so we stopped on the way back at a place called The Bricks.
So the big day came, the day I rode my bike to work. It was pretty awesome. That one section was pretty terrifying. I just hoped that everyone was paying attention to the road and not texting or eating a breakfast sandwich. Following the sketch section of road there is a bridge. Everyday I drive over the bridge I admire the scenery, cause who doesn’t love driving over water?!?!
The one thing that I never get to do is stop and enjoy it. Since I was peddling, I stopped at the top of the bridge and watched the sun rise. I wish everyday could start like that!!
Then had to get a shot of downtown:
I ended up taking my lunch break to ride home then work from home the rest of the afternoon. Beat the typical afternoon thunderstorms.
Aside from cycling, lots of yoga. Which I had my Weekend 6 of yoga teacher training post almost done and my computer glitch and erased it…so with that I didn’t feel like retyping it all so it will eventually get posted. I even practice taught 2 classes last week at work during lunch. Technically I can’t teach in the gym at work but I go and whoever wants to join me can and I do my yoga practice and tell them how to move through the motions. Practice makes perfect!
Hope you guys have been have a stellar time!
