Today I was called "strong"
Sunday, August 09, 2009
I biked 54 miles today with a friend of mine, and a friend of his. His friend biked on ahead, but Mike and I biked most of the way together. At the start I presumed he was keeping pace with me. But then I quit following him and moved to the lead position, and went up a hill. At the top, I looked back and he was down the hill behind me. I then realized that I was keeping pace with him. And at the middle of the ride, and the end of the ride, he said, "You are strong." Mike has biked in Europe and has a biking tour in Colorado planned.
I am strong. I'm 53 years old and in the best shape of my life. I've been thinner. But I've never been in this good of shape and health. I did it right this time.
