Right now.

15 Jan

Rituals.

Teeth brushing.

Cool tingle of chamois balm.

Layering clothes on.  Embro starts to warm.

Buzz of the coffee grinder.  Trying to pull a decent shot while still groggy.

Jamming more oatmeal down than I truly want to eat.

Last sip of coffee as the embrocation blossoms into a full burn.  Time to saddle up.

Check tire pressure, brace for the first rush of cold air as I step out the door.

Breathe deep as legs move from turning clunky squares to spinning circles and icy wind squeezes water from my eyes.  Peculiar sort of freedom on a winter morning.
