|This pretty much sums up the winter|
It's been a while since either of us blogged, so I thought it was high time to change that! The calendar says it's spring, but it's still rather wintery here in Minnesota, as usual. This winter was miserable. Scientifically proven: miserable.
|We did it!|
It got us thinking about trying to do a real triathlon in the future. We'll see ... maybe next year.
I was also able to get out on my bike a couple of times so far this year. We had a day in January when the temps hit about 40, so I got my bike and didn't look back. It felt great to ride outside! There were patches of ice and several spots where I had to really work hard to balance while riding on top of packed down snow. It was a challenge, but worth it. If only winter could be in the 40s all the time, I'd be out every day!!
Another time, while walking the dogs along the Mississippi River Trail (a favorite place to bike) I walked past a couple out on their fat bikes. I admit, I'm intrigued. But for an extra $900, I'm not sure I'd use it enough to justify the price. I know some people are much more committed than I am, but there is no way I'm biking in subzero temps.
The forecast for Sunday is 58 degrees! Jamey is hoping we can get our bikes out for the inaugural ride down to Psycho Suzie's. I'm hoping so too! I can't wait for winter to leave us for good. I've got lots of great rides planned for this summer!
Stay tuned to see where our bikes take us this year!
