So, we had a big relaunch of this here bikey-blog, and I at least was really excited about it. But a funny thing happens when you have two (2) children under two (2) years old who frequently make a habit of sneezing into their father's open mouth: I got super sick. I haven't been on a bike in about a week now.
Man-colds are a very real thing. For some reason, I lack the emotional/spiritual fortitude to see a cold for exactly what it is, and instead approach it like it's a death sentence. But, work needs to be done, so I've been driving the gas guzzler and plowing through.
So imagine my sheer joy when I woke up and saw this scene outside my window:
With school cancelled, my usually busy Wednesday night is completely cleared. So as much I would absolutely love to get out on the mountain bike and do something completely foolish, today I am lazing around in bed and trying to take full advantage of the situation and recover.
I do end up feeling really guilty when I've committed to the bike-style, and hit seasons like this where it just makes the most sense to relax and recover. But one of my favorite parts about the bike-style is that it will always be there waiting for me. Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but I will in fact get back on the two wheeled beast and get back on the roads. But as for today, I'm going to sit on the couch, watch YouTube videos about biking, and relax.

Spring is coming!
