Today Was a Good Day.
Rode my bike today after a short client stretch in the a.m. Grabbed a slice from Polito's- the dope local joint where you can order right from the street through a window & can cop freshly shaved Italian Ice's in the Summer. Went for a ride through the hood and stopped by the local "throw up" spot. There were some new pieces up and some people filming for some video.
Some peeps hate on fixed kits these days, but hey it's just a bike. It's like back when you were kids & wanted that craze BMX set-up but couldn't cash up. But now you all grow'ed up with a little change, so it's fun to piece your kit together. Not to mention you're getting some exercise. I don't know how many calories I'm burning during a four hour ride but it has to more than sitting there complaining about being tired all the time.
Plus being out in the mix you get to see a grip of shit, more so than you would walking around. While running you also get to cover as much area & really see what's going on, but only very few people I know still run outside. I remember being amazed last summer seeing the same runner we saw the previous day in Laguna only to show up in Newport the next morning @ small car show; a decent 20 mile distance with all hills. Not only was she breathtakingly beautiful, she f'n ran that whole distance twice in two days. She did, however, have the exact same outfit we saw her run in the evening prior. It didn't take away from how hot she was, but I swear after two days her gear must smell like a baloney sandwich.
