Oh dang

As some of you may have noticed, I've fallen off the radar. Like, way, way off. I think it's been a year since I posted anything...and well over a year since I rode my bike with any regularity. School, job hunting, new career as a nurse in the ER...bikes have been on the back burner. But I'm starting to feel the itch to ride again, especially thanks to some fellow Flagstaff Soulcrafters Leslie and Stacy. It's hard to beat a long ride with good friends! Hope to keep up my riding streak, and who knows I may even (gasp!) race my bike this year.

Back to It

For most of us, riding bikes is a typical part of the weekend schedule. It may be a race, a roost on a favorite mtb loop, or a cruise to an over-priced coffee and a yard sale, but it's there. The weekend bike ride is always there, like a good friend, or your laundry basket: waiting for you to dive in.

So in a sense, this weekend was like most others, except my "laundry basket" has been a bit empty when it comes to bike riding. Cancer can do that to you-set your priorities on the sideline while it wreaks a game of havoc on the main field. But I am back to it. I'm back to that invigorating flow of trail and rock and trees and laughter. I'm back to it, people, and cancer can watch me roll.
