We agreed to cycle at Two Rivers Park. I had been running there before with the ladies running group I joined almost three years ago, so I knew what I was in for: beautiful, quiet, mostly wooded, paved trails.
Just for background info, John is a HOOT. And a conversationalist. So we had a very pleasant time cycling all over that place. He said that he was impressed that I was out there in DA BOOT. Then he said you just can't keep an athlete down. Ha! I loved that.
John and I in front of the Arkansas River.
I introduced John to Daisy. I asked what his bike's name was. He said she didn't have one, but she had received many cussings (as we say here in the South) in the past 13 years since she became his, so I suggested that he call her Dammit. Thus, Dammit was born!
Chasen always says that I look like a bike cop in my high-vis yellow jacket. Today, due to DA BOOT, he said I looked like RoboCop. HA!
I'm happy to report that my ankle/foot did just fine out there. Zero pain. So far, so good, in terms of the aftermath. (I am not anticipating any aftermath, but one never knows.)
John, also known as Elijah's honorary "Uncle John," used to train for triathlons. He'd like to get back into it. I think I have just found myself a cycling buddy! We went 12.29 miles today. My fastest speed was 19.5 MPH. It was a fantastic morning! I finally felt like myself. :)
