Today was a wet, cold miserable excuse for a spring day. I had an allergic reaction late last night and had to take Benadryl at eleven o'clock at night, which left me drowsy all day. Jack is off his schedule, so he was up at five o'clock in the morning, oh the joys of little people! He's been a bit cranky all day and I wondered if he was feeling under the weather, so I waited until Kyle got home from work to take my daily ride.
Look how lonely my departure shot looks without Mr. Smileypants on board! I missed my little co-pilot, but I was also happy for some "me" time. I didn't even get rained on the entire time and took a nice low speed, easy ride as that was all the energy I could muster.
There is something very enjoyable about riding after the rain, when everything smells fresh and clean, but there was nothing extraordinary about the ride in itself, although as always it was lovely and I feel better getting out there and doing it. I'm still trying to come up with a plan for May, as I'd like to take on a similar challenge, if you have any ideas please share them with me!
