Ride With Me

The weather today makes it hard to believe,

But Saturday was perfect for riding.

All of my peeps were otherwise committed so I rode alone,,


I decided to bring you all along for the ride,

In case you've never had the chance to see this beauty in person,

Here is my bike which I pretty much love.

I could impress you with all of the technical stats,

But let's be honest, do you really care when it is so cute.

I had a new book on my I-pod and was ready to roll.

It started off kind of abruptly, but

I figured it would all make sense eventually.

After a full chapter I was still lost,

No big surprise considering it was chapter 22.

I finally figured out I had only downloaded part 2. Oops.

Not to worry, I had another book and lots of music

So I pulled over, switched the I-pod,

And was back in business.

Between Provo and Springville there is a development

That was never finished.

It's perfect for riding, smooth roads and no cars.

I am not sure if this was discarded, or meant as art...

Either way, I usually laugh when I ride by.

Ahhh, this is what makes the hill climbing worthwhile,

Hobble Creek Canyon

I knew the Provo Marathon/Half Marathon was Saturday.

What I didn't know was that it would be right on my route.

It was super fun to see several people I knew.

And, lets be honest here, whether I know you or not,

Seeing runners at the end of a race makes me cry.

Congrats to all the runners.

You inspire me.

Inspiring....I really need to get in the groove again. I'm having a hard time find my friend named motivation.

AND--hilarious about the book. Something I would do for sure :)
