ONE OF THE REASONS WE STARTED THE SHOP (SATURDAY HOUR OF POWER) RIDE was so that the young guys could get home to their little kids. It turns out it's good for the old guys, too.
I'm home 2-3 hours earlier. At 9:45.
Because it's a "shorter" ride I'm fresher.
Which give me time for others besides myself. This is not my default.
Today I had time and energy to help a friend move her things from storage to a new apartment. Then, had more time and energy to mentor a young, high school MTB racer. Plus, a bit of time to help around the house.
