Snow, Skiing, and the Indoor Trainer

1

I hate riding indoors.

But this week I logged 240 kilometers on the indoor trainer, which is more than the rest of my life combined. I just couldn’t get myself to ride out in the awful weather. I am not sure why.

But today, the falling snow looked too inviting. And as often happens, after getting out the door, the ride was too much fun.

Nice Day For a Ride

And riding the last stretch home, in the all white distance, I saw a runner in pink approaching. As she neared she stretched her hand out to high-five. And I suddenly realized it was my wife out for a run. We didn’t see any other fools out – every one else’s loss.

The People You Meet!

A week ago we returned from our annual ski trip in the Alps at Les Arcs / La Plagne. Perhaps, the best weather and conditions we have ever had.

And the big news? My wife is now a better skier than me. It was only a few years ago that I would spend each run patiently waiting. Now she attacks everything. Just great!
