I'M SICK OF ALL THESE EXCUSES, LIKE #BIKECOIN

I'M SICK OF ALL THESE EXCUSES, LIKE #BIKECOIN

I COULDA BEEN A CONTENDER?  Heck, I was a contender. Something has happened.  Not only don't I contend, I don't even give it a shot.  And I can't even tell you when it started.  How did I get here?...

... this is not my pathetic attitude.

Actually it is.

... this is not my heavish bike.

Actually, that is also true.

... this is not my slovenly body.

And yes, that in actuality is slightly true.

That's how I felt when I rolled out the door today...

... defeated.

But, somewhere along the way I felt a little encouraged.

Was it the sunrise?

The easier than usual pace at the start?

Hard to say.

All I can tell is I was huffingandpuffing up all the climbs while everyone else was chatting and telling jokes.

My lungs hurt, and my throat burned.

I'm gonna ditch two of the three lame excuses, attitude and body, and maybe if the #bikecoin crisis ever ends I'll get the parts for that new, half-built road bike...

... I'll be a contender.

For sure it helped to have lathered up with PR Lotion.
