windy and beautiful


this was a windy, but beautiful ride. the sky was blue with, here and there, a puffy white cloud. gorgeous! i'm glad i had time for a quick 10-miler.

on the way out, with the wind in my face, i was struggling at times to manage 10mph. going up drouhard hill with a headwind was downright painful. but then i got to turn around and let the same wind push me home. i got warm quickly and sat up to pull my jacket off as i rolled down the empty road. "look, ma, no hands!"

i was buffeted a bit on the correction line section, but not too badly. pushed through the slight southerly wind and made it back home. (10.12 miles @ 16.4mph)
