It was great to go biking again, even if it was just a single Chutes ride. Gotta start somewhere... Actually, though, I did better than I expected, but bad enough to be upset about the 4 months of downtime. I was really getting somewhere, and now I have to almost start over again. I was surprised that I was able to make it up b1 and b3 though, first of all because I had never made it up b1 before (it was more hardpacked this time) but also because when I first started biking I couldn't do any of them. It's nice to know I'm not all the way back where I was a year ago, that would really suck. Hopefully I'll do Whiting Ranch after work 3 or 4 times a week, and once I get some shoes I will be running again, too. That just leaves swimming, but I really hate swimming and am not looking forward to it at all. I have started a little side project that hopefully I will be able to launch in a month or less... we'll see. Just in case it doesn't happen, though, I'm not going to bother going into any details or descriptions of what I plan to do. What would be the point?

I actually have an itch to try my hand at some creative writing, something I haven't done in almost 9 years... damn. The funny thing is that it's hard to find the time to sit and write for long periods of time without interruption. It's hard to find long periods of time period. If I do, though, I am going to try and start writing again, and of course I'll post the crap on the site, so that hopefully someone will come along and read it and send me an email about it. Doesn't matter if it's bad or good, it would just be nice to be read.
