The hips are feeling better to day. I didn't have to crawl out of the futon this morning. I even managed to catch the Early Morning Wake Up ride. A nice easy slow paced bike ride before I came into work today.
On the way to the Early Morning bike ride, I watched the sun rise. It was like watching a fire rise from the mountain. It was amazing with all of the colors and I wish I would have had my camera with me. Darn! It was at home but here's one I took last year about the same time of year on my way to the bike ride.
I really enjoy these morning rides. There's a group of about 9 of us that are regulars on this ride. I refer to it as a gab session on wheels. It's a fun group and we've all known each other a few years. We are kind of a cantankerous group. We poke fun and take verbal jabs at each other as we bike along this regular route three mornings a week. I'm the young one in the group; and sometimes I remind them that I'm TOO young to remember certain things. One of my common jabs at them. I guess you could say that I get to take out a little early morning frustration out while biking along. I tell my friends it's like taking an early morning walk on a bike. It's a wonderful way to start off the day.
