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!
