riding to work....slowly

i did my monday thing monday. but i did it oh, so slowly.

i think riding the hg as a single speed on sunday wore me out. my butt was sore. i was lethargic. wait, that's normally the way i am....

it was a great morning for a ride, though. i ran into russ murphy on geyer. it seems he was spinning his legs out from his 4th place finish on sunday. i bid him goodbye as i closed in on clayton. i had left the house 15 minutes earlier, but my slow pace was too slow. i picked it up in time to get rained on at clayton and baxter, where it normally rains on me. i can't tell you how many times it has rained on me, starting at that intersection. luckily, the rain stopped right as i pulled into the lot at ghisallo. thanks, rain!

the ride home was painfully slow, and an east wind made it painfully unenjoyable. i shouldn't be so bitter. a bad ride is better than no ride at all, and the weather had turned quite balmy.

I am struck by the shorthard and the tenor of this post.

Hg may mean home grown but it is also the shorthand for Mercury. And of course Mercury is the speedy messenger, winged footed and all.

Therefore it would be appropriate that you get the hg to "fly" when ever you want.

mercury the hg is not! especially with me on board. the more appropriate periodic element style abbreviation would be Pb, and i'm sure you know what that stands for....
