Day 1

09-09-09 - What a great anniversary to have for starting my bike commute.  And, it's my BIRTHDAY to boot!

So, the alarm when off...EARLY.  Way early.  But, I was excited about my day, so off to the shower.  I figured I needed to get out by 5:30 in order to have plenty of time to make it to my bus stop before the 'B' line arrives.  Of course, there are a few last minute things I forgot to pack.  So, I got on the road at 5:42.  GAH!  Have to pedal hard as I want to make it by 5:50.  The jacket I grabbed was a bad idea as it was very humid out.

So, I made it to the bus.  And made my next bus at the park and ride.  I must say, a very pleasant experience.  Relaxing and quiet.  I got on campus just before 7:00 AM.  Got the bike locked up and after changing, I was working by a few mins after 7:00.  What a great way to start the day!
