Yeah, yeah, I know, I know. No HNTs from me in ages.
Sorry, sorry. Been busy and all that. But because so many of you have been clamoring (well, okay, a few of you asked nicely) I’ll try to get back into it.
We’ve had unseasonably nice weather up in New England, so this weekend I pulled the road bike out of the back corner of the garage, pumped up the tires, and went for a 15 mile spin – first I’ve been on it since November. About 4 or 5 miles in, I realized that over the winter, the frost heaves made the hills steeper. Oh, and somebody must have moved the saddle position, because my butt is freakin’ sore, as are my legs and back and arms…
Anyway, I don’t normally bike in jeans, but I don’t have any long, stretchy pants, and I was worried that I would be a little chilly. Turns out that after a couple of miles, I was already overheated. So, here’s me in my tight, stretchy lycra shirt, and some old, baggy jeans.
I managed not to put on too much muffin top over the winter, no thanks to my wife and daughter who keep baking up a storm every week. Why do women do that?
I’m waiting for the weather to warm up just a little bit more so I can squeeze into those tight spandex bike shorts. Those things are like Spanx for men, but they do round out my butt pretty nicely.
So, for all of you who have been dying to see pictures of a 50+ year old, gray-haired guy, well, here’s your fix.
