Bikin' and Runnin'
Finally, a day with good enough weather to get on my bike and actually go somewhere. Too bad I woke up so late because I didn't have as much time as I would have liked. I rode 5 miles down the Dalton Highway to my favorite little side road then did a short 3 mile run, then rode the bike back to the Prudhoe Bay Hotel. It was a really nice day, 40 degrees with only a 10 knot wind out of the north. With my hat under my helmet, it was warm enough when riding into the wind. I've been terribly stressed lately, dealing with my mom down in California who needs assisted living. So difficult trying to get her to understand. Exercise helps me to retain my sanity through it all.
I propped my camera up with a rock and took a photo of me with my bike, there on my little favorite road.
