Hi Piddy!

Did you read that Margaret Wise Brown book, "Home for a Bunny" when you were a kid? I remember it so
well: "'Spring, spring, spring' sang the robin. 'Spring, spring, spring' sang the frog. It was
Spring." [Go here to find the book yourself: http://tinyurl.com/85lp]

Spring is here, too, and this is how I know it's true:

o Don't need the thermal underwear any more.

o One day I rode in my short sleeves. Still wearing tights though -- when those get shed,
it's summer!

o I've moved to the lighter long-finger gloves. When they finally get put away, and all I wear is
the fingerless, it's summer!

o Don't need the lights! I can arrive at work at 8:00 AM without them!

o I just started up "training rides" for this summer's cycling events.

Unlike last year, when I did lots of 30-50 mile rides on the weekends through fall and winter,
this year I didn't. While my kids and husband I'm sure appreciate seeing me more, and no doubt I'm
a better human being for it, oy oy oy! When I did my first training ride on Sunday, I was
thoroughly dusted by all the other riders on the hills. I've now made a vow to change my commute
so I go up this big monster hill so I get the hill work I've been skipping out on these last few
wet cold months.

Go spring!

Warm Regards,

Went for a good 3 hour MTB ride today, all over Brush Mountain near Blacksburg. Temps around 70,
probably for the rest of the week too. I even called home for a ride so I could stay out in the
woods later, rather than spend time riding home. Can't wait to go again tomorrow!
