Today’s Movement: Cycling (outdoors) & Stretching
Thirty days of movement – I made it! It seemed fitting to end as I began with a bike ride. I jumped on the light rail for a few stops then cycled another five miles or so to meet my spouse (her first ride of the year!) and a good friend and their toddler (her first ride ever!). We did a leisurely seven miles on the Burke-Gilman, all of us having our own challenges for the day (ask me about falling over in while still clipped into my bike…THAT’S going to take some practice), but enjoying the morning and camaraderie.
ON THE MOVE:
I saw: The city waking up and being active on a Sunday morning – Cyclists, divers, runners, kayakers…
I loved: Being part of a toddler’s first ride and also being out the bikes for the first time with my spouse this year.
#RealTalk: Did I mention that clipless pedals / cycling shoes are going to take me a while to get used to? Ouch.
