i woke up this morning with a bit of a sore throat left over from last night basketball game. not sure if i'm coming down with something or what. either way, i went out in the 27 degree air and rode around a bit. i wasn't sure what i wanted to do other than get in some miles to stay on track and even get a little ahead of my year's goal. that i did successfully, taking in four miles more than i'd originally planned riding up and around past the ethanol plant. now i have to rush around and get to the college of nursing to help with a free health clinic that i volunteer at.
