For my great marriage, first and foremost. For better health than this time last year, and a rockin’ fast bike I didn’t have a year ago.
For stepping out to go to work and smelling trees and earth and air – not cement.
For a new gym membership, giving me something besides <
Countless long rides in one of the most beautiful places in the country. And my big-climbing metrics this year, the furthest and highest I’ve ridden since the early ‘80s. And especially for the prospect of my first century ever next year.
For a greater acceptance of my puzzling new health limits since I reached my mid-40s.
For the first job in my fairly seasoned life in which my reservations are outweighed by my appreciation.
For this changeable, puzzling, thrilling thing they call Life.
