Today was the Celebrate Urban Nature bash at the Magnuson Community Center and I made the mistake of thinking it’d be nice to ride the bike there. The good: Brandt got to try out his new Bobike wind shield and liked it, and I got to see a couple students doing the walk of shame as I pedaled past the university. The bad: it was more ride than I’m ready for. In retrospect, I see why this ride caused so many contractions ten months ago.
It took forever to get there, but since the band started late we were able to see Caspar Babypants live finally. After the festival, playground visit, and lunch, I really wanted to call for a pickup, but I ended up braving the windy ride home. I only made it up one block of Stone this time, but some day I’ll be back in shape. Sigh.
