    I biked to work for the first time today!

    I biked to work for the first time today. I live only about 3 miles from my office, and it's a fairly straight shot on mostly residential streets (except the last part which is a bit city). I'm not a very confident bike rider, having learned late, and I'm very proud of myself. It's a beautiful day in South Florida, sunny and warm but not hot. I've been mulling the idea over (to bike to work) for over a year now, and I'm glad I finally took the bike by the handles and did it. I went in late to avoid traffic. I'm not in the best shape, and I got a bit sweaty, but I have no meetings today.

    Only thing was that I forgot the bike lock. Hahaha. But luckily, I was able to take the bike up the service elevator and bring it into my office.

    Hurrah!

    Good for you! I hope to do that soon---we're just coming out of freezing weather. The days will soon be longer, too.
    My therapist told me the way to achieve true inner peace is to finish what I start. So far today, I have finished two bags of M&Ms and a chocolate cake. I feel better already!

    I loved riding to work on my bike. It was about the same distance. I would arrive so invigorated. Unfortunately, sometimes in the evening it was exhausting coming home, (more uphill and already tired) and that never got better. I had to be a very defensive rider. The streets here are not set up for bicycle commuting.
