I just biked in from home, and boy, are my legs tired!

I mean it… they’re tired. It’s only fifteen miles, but it’s the first time I made the trip on bike. The first twelve miles or so, no problem. Country roads, next to no traffic, a few hills. Then I hit a major road into town (with no side roads with which to avoid it). There, the pedaling was good, but the traffic was a bit rough. But then, I crossed the river well within sight of downtown. The hills there just about did me in — I don’t think I’ll be able to make it up the other way going back tonight. I’ll just have to walk a small stretch.

But I made it. It’s a big milestone for me. I’ve wanted to do this since I moved out there last spring, but kept finding all sorts of excuses. Now, I know I can make it, and I’ll try to do it a few times a week.
