I have made it home safe and sound. Julia Garnet and I drove non-stop from Tucson to Saskatoon in 30.5 hours. Impressive if I do say so myself. I am glad to say that the drive is over. I am more than certain that road trips, although worth while, cannot be good for your health. In the last 30 hours I was seated 95% of the time and my diet consisted primarily of nayonnaise and chocolate coffee beans. And now, it is over.
Also over is my time in Tucson. I had quality weather. I had quality training. And, I had quality adventures. In two months I rode over 4,100 kilometers, climbed over 36000m and got my tan on in a big way. I would even consider myself spoiled by the warm weather. I feel like I have come home to an absolute deep freeze. If I intend to train over the next few weeks I am in for a healthy dose of HTFU. The fourteen day trend predicts highs between -8C and -18C. I cannot wait for that to come to an end.
Just like my drive and my life in Tucson, I supose that my daily posts will also come to an end. It's hard to believe but I have made one post a day for two months. This was never something that I planned to do. Rather it is something that I just began, and continued, and now have finished. Sometimes writing was just something to do. Sometimes thinking of a post was a chore or a challenge. Most of all, I enjoyed flexing my literary brain waves to maintain this personal web-log. Furthermore, in some strange way I enjoy that it is anonymously read. For some reason you all keep coming back for more. I hope that it is more than just frequency, because now that I am home the posting will have a more casual regularity. I still intend to keep the world updated on any noteworthy action or opinions that come through my life.
Thanks for reading.
Thanks for giving me reason to write.
