Day 189: 16.3 miles on the bike

Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving.

I’m not much of a bike fan but I was intrigued by X-Terra triathlon in Maui (which was on TV as I rode.) It really motivated me to get going, especially hearing the stories of the athletes who compete (the amateurs are just like anyone else). I felt like I should get my butt in gear and do a triathlon, but I really don’t know where to start (and I HATE cycling…) but I may like it more if I was outdoors, not at the Trico Centre!

At the end of it, I did 26.08 km, which works out to about 2:18 min/km. My legs are already sore, in case you were wondering. I am sure that’s nothing compared to some people who bike all the time, but I am just amazed I stayed on the dang thing that long!

Anyway, that’s it.

Hope everyone is having a fantastic long weekend!

p.s.: I saw this picture while looking up funny bike photos… and I choked on margarita.
