WIFE: So what are you doing today? Going for a bike ride?
ME: I don't know. I thought about going for a ride but I don't really feel like it.
WIFE: My mom's coming over this afternoon.
ME: Well, then I guess I'm gonna go for a bike ride!
I chose Waterfall Glen, a hilly, curvy, crushed-limestone loop that's just under 10 miles. Sadly, it totally kicked my ass. My original intention was to do the loop twice (once in each direction), but by the third mile it was obvious that wasn't going to happen. I rode my mountain bike for the first time all year instead of my trusty Americano. So I'll just blame everything on the bike rather than my utter lack of fitness.
Here's the kicker: my mother-in-law never showed up at our house anyway.
