I rode 38 miles today - about 24 of that was with the Babes on Bikes. It was a perfect biking day, weather-wise. But tonight, I am tired. DOG tired. In fact, at 6:30 after we finished eating dinner I looked at the clock and WILLED it to be later because it was too early to collapse in my bed yet.
On the other hand, I am so grateful. I got to ride on a perfect bike day along the Potomac River, viewing the monuments and memorials, as if they were ordinary. Some people save for years for the chance to come see the city of Washington, to walk in the footsteps of people they admire. I can take it all in stride as local color.
So, thank you God for my husband's job, for our home, for good schools for our kids, for my bike and for my health.
Tomorrow is supposed to be rainy so I can justify staying inside and recovering!
Now it's almost 8, so I can power down. Whew.
