I did it!

 I biked 10 miles today!  5 miles to work in 32 degrees weather and 5 miles home with temps at 59 degrees!  The ride home was MUCH nicer except my butt and knees were more sore.

My bike ride took me along close to 5 miles of Campbell Creek.  Spring is really here!

The beavers have been attacking the trees along the creek.

High-five Patty! Wasn't it beautiful just taking your time cruising on your bike? I am so proud of you for going the ten miles. Are you ready to join the Tainterturtles cycling club???

Nice photos too.

What a biker you are. Are you going to try and do that more often this summer? Other then rainy days? Oh, that's right. It rains all the time in Anchorage. It got up to 86 yesterday! Got a little tan going on now.

Hi Patty, I'd love to ride my mountain bike to work but it's to far.

Wanted to stop by to tell you that I'm taking an Alaska Cruise in July for my birthday.


Love for a great day!
