A Small Confession


I have a small confession to make. This is not really that big of a deal, I suppose, but it is well within the original post for this blog two years ago regarding the two mile challenge.

Today, after rushing around work all day I had planned on going to the health club as I hadn't been there in a few days (I really wanted to go for a good hot steam more than anything else). I was walking out the front door with my bike, the temperature was mild (for this time of year), and I had time...but I was just so tired. For people in the food service industry this can be an incredibly busy time of year, and with me it is no exception. As I stood in my doorway, with my hands literally on the handlebars of my bike, I saw my truck in front of me...and thought "what the hell." I drove the 1 1/2 mile to and fro and it felt good. So to my fellow bikers and carbon footprint-do gooders who read this blog...my apologies.

The truck got me there in a short amount of time, but it was not nearly as fun and refreshing.

Sell the truck. You know you want to. This was the fork in the road.

No apologies necessary! You are doing more than most on a day to day basis, including posting your blog entries which are always inspiring to read. I think you can certainly cut yourself a little slack, especially at this busy time of year! Cheers, Sally
