I am Jack's aching lungs.
I just made it from my first cycle commute to work from the new place.
I'm going to die now. Send well-wishes and money to lady_fox.

Still the first person here though. :)

And I forgot a fucking towel....

K.. Caught breath mostly.
Route: Park Ridge Dr to Gammon Lane to Schroeder Ave to Whitney Way.
Gammon is up hill from the house and the first leg of schroeder is as well. However, 75% of Schroeder is a nice incline down. I think I hit about 30 MPH (hooray for topping out gears) before I had to stop at the Beltline/Whitney intersection. From there things went to shit as I forgot to downshift before stopping and had to struggle through the intersection and up the small hill of Whitney.

It hit my second wind as I had to cross four lanes of traffic to get into the Westgate mall parking lot. Hurray for adrenaline.

I hurt but this is the most well earned exercise I've ever had. I'm so not using the treadmill at the gym today.
Now, to change into clean clothes.

Stinky bunny.

My sweat doesn't smell, actually. I'm quite healthy.
It takes three days of workouts before my workout shirts get stinky.

stinky sweat = unhealthy?

I may die tomorrow if that's that case.

Eh? Some of the less healthy people I"ve know smell terrible when they sweat. It probably has more to do with diet, what you drink especially I'd imagine.

I bet I just secrete pure pheromone.

Because really after helping Grant move yesterday... it was not a flowery ride home. I think hydration plays a role as well.

This may be true. Come sweat over here and we'll see.

Also, Kink(ed) is on the 9th? Grant is still expressing much interest in this - more then me perhaps.

Wow. Cool.
Yes, the 9th. Come. :)

Maybe. Even when not well hydrated, my sweat doesn't smell though. I may just be lucky.

You can find out on the 10th. I'm sure I'll be sweating after moving.

Kink(ed) is indeed on the 9th. You should certainly come. We'll have crash space on our couches if you don't want to drive all the way back especially if you're helping us move the next day.
