I apologize for not having a post lined up for today. Big things are afoot. I could have shortchanged the next installment in my Noob’s Guide to Cycling post because it was almost set, but I wouldn’t have done it justice in the wrap-up.
Big things are happening.
I was informed yesterday that I’m being promoted. And it’s a doozy. I’ve been busier than a one-legged pirate in an ass-kicking competition since. Things will settle down again after today, over the weekend, but for right now, it’s all hands on deck.
As my sponsor pointed out yesterday, funny how things work out when you’re just concentrating on doing the next right thing at any given moment. I was completely blindsided. You hope your hard work is recognized, that something like this will happen, but this is a lot bigger than I could have hoped for.
I did get out for a night ride yesterday evening. My wife planned a celebration for tonight as we had a Christmas light ride planned for several days. We did 21 miles and I took the mountain bike, averaging 14.4-mph. It was a great ride and the weather was stellar (a balmy 40° or about 4 C).
