Early Mornin’ Ride

There is nothing like an early morning ride to get the heart pumping, blood running through your veins and the sweat dripping down your face. This morning I did a nice 28 miler while my girlfriend went for a long run. I was pretty much her “pace” car which entails mainly just carrying water for her and riding around in loops in the meantime. Even with that I got in a nice ride. I just enjoyed being out in the cool spring air even if it did mean I had to be her sherpa…

 

Along the way I found this sweet flower.

I regret not taking more pictures along the route but I was just trying to locate the other half (girlfriend) most of the time. I wish I could have taken a pic of this hill I conquered. It was ummm steep! I mean steeeeeep! For those of you who also live in the twin cities, it is the hill off Summit Ave that goes into Downtown St. Paul. It is rather steep. I will have to give it another go again soon (and take some pics this time…). Great training hill but I wouldn’t want to climb that too often.

    Very nice pic – you’ll definitely have to shoot more next weekend, and share them with us. It looks like spring is even beginning to reach the Twin Cities…!

    It’s not bad for an iphone huh? One of these days I will have to take my advance point and shoot and take some along the river bottoms with my mountain bike… once I finish my mountain bike that is. I wouldn’t say spring is quite here yet considering the fact that it snowed this morning :/ hopefully it come soon enough though! Thanks for following!
