El Toro Negro, March 13, 2007--the loneliness of the long distance runner
70 degrees; clear skies; bright sun
6.2 miles
33 minutes
11 mph average speed
Condition at end of ride: Envigorated.

Just went for a spin around the neighborhood to continue the dialogue between my ass and my bicycle seat. Beautiful, warm day. First time this year I wore just a wife-beater--no outer layers.

There is something special about rolling along smooth, black pavement at 15-20, hearing only the whir of the machine and the woof of my breathing. Howsoever briefly one encounters such a thing on a six mile ride, it is nonetheless evocative of the post's sub-head.

Should have worn sunscreen.
