What a fantastic weekend this was! Sunday, Cheryl and I completed the Urban Assault Ride – Minneapolis, and it was a blast (except for the part when I ate her food… and then she got hungry… and wanted her food… Sorry sweetie!).
After two hours of bike riding, shoe sling shots, a water slide, big wheels, bucking a ride on a bmx, more bike riding, a three legged race…. After about an hour of hanging out at the after party, at which I did the Nice Ride slow race (won a poster) and we rode the minicycles…. After chatting with bunches of people… After having a lovely lunch at the Freewheel bicycle cafe… And after yet a bit more bike riding… I HAD NOTHING LEFT.
I’d been told that I should do that – do all I can do… and my body would let me know when I was all done. Yesterday, when we got back from Urban Assault, I put our bicycles away… and laid down in the back yard… listened to Cheryl chat with the neighbor… maybe dozed a tiny bit… until I got bit by something. My comment? I’m all done. Right now. This very instant. All done. Deep feeling of tired happiness.
Then, I took me a nap.
And then my friend Heather – who now lives in Florida (pout) – came, and we spent several low key hours hanging and chilling and talking… and it was grand. And we ate pad thai and kung pao tofu from the coop – YUMMY!
