What's up fella's? It seems like a year or so since I've written about cycling stuff. That's because I haven't ridden my bike in a whole month. This weekend makes 4 weeks since my last ride. What happened? How can that be?
Well, both my kids, Noel 10, and Nicholas 8 started softball and baseball respectively. With two different teams and two practice and game schedules, it is hard to fit in any extra time on the road. Oh, I also have a wife, have a social life, teach spin class, have a job, go to church, and just started P90X. Here I am making excuses again. The truth be known, I have shifted my priorities to something a whole lot more important. I am not only coaching and helping them grow as little people, I am having fun doing it. See, in the past, I use to stress about when I was going to fit in a bike ride. I would do all the kid and family activities but in the back of mmy mind I was always stressing to see when I could ride. Did it ever cause conflict, uhh, somewhat but not noticable. So, when I fins that perfect balance, weighted heavily towards family, I'll do it.
There will be plenty time for riding bikes, but everyday I neglect or fail to capilalize on time with my kids, I miss out. It's gone, never to be again.
