A Good Day

Today was a good day. A very good day. I felt the best today that I have all week. (This is not to say that I’m “better” – just that I didn’t feel completely drained and defeated.)

I rode my Opus Fhast 29er out at South March Highlands (aka Kanata Lakes) after work. It was awesome. I’m finally clicking with my new bike. I rode over, around and through things that previously had me stumbling, fumbling and mumbling. (I’m sure my sweet new Opus cycling kit helped me out. Looking good is half the battle!)

I felt like I could ride forever today. I wasn’t super fast. But I pedaled and smiled. I remembered to look ahead down the trail and anticipate the terrain. I discovered some new-to-me trails. I rescued a turtle.

Most of all, I listened to my body. I didn’t push it. I just rode for fun and sheer enjoyment.

(Big thanks to Dave for the sweet Opus cycling kit. The black and green looks super sharp and the kit is very comfortable.)
