Yesterday, I got up before work and went out for a bike ride (after coffee! I learned my lesson the first time I went out before work, and I suffered from lack of coffee...)
I wanted to catch the sunrise over the lake, from the causeway. I had limited time, so I set my timer and set off.
I managed to make really good time, and I caught the sunrise just like I wanted to. It was a glorious morning.
Later in the day, it got very hot and muggy, which was highly unpleasant. The morning was much more palatable to ride in. I'm so glad I got out.
It was a 7.2 mile ride total, 37 minutes, so about 11.5 mph. I would love to do this ride again before work - we'll see about the rest of the week. Today was my son's birthday, and I had special breakfast plans, so I skipped riding. Hoping for tomorrow. The weather is unsettled, with strong thunderstorms. Not good biking weather.
As I was riding, two songs came to mind. First was Erasure's Run to the Sun - in my case, Ride to the Sun.
The second song that came to mind was Here Comes the Sun.
It was a joyful way to start the day.
