The Bike Ride

I followed through on the bike ride today. Felt amazingly good. Not to rub it in to those of you east of here, especially my Wisconsin homies who just got clobbered with the first big winter storm, but it is a beautiful day here in SoCal. I rode from my house to the Manhattan Beach pier and north through El Segundo, past LAX and on to the bridge spanning the Marina del Rey Channel and back. Total distance of about 15 miles and I covered it in just about an hour. But the main thing is I feel really good for having so much chemo in me.

Tonite, Susan and I are going to see the new movie about Margaret Thatcher. I'm little worried about being in public with so many people sporting colds and such. Thinking about wearing a mask and gloves. And learning to moonwalk.

  1. Go get 'em Ed!! You continue to inspire.

    Jane and I too are going to see the Iron Lady (in Carlsbad). Should be interesting, We lived through her Premiership as students and then young professionals. Transformative times......

    1. Too bad none of that came through in the movie. I was totally distracted by the soundtrack (heavy handed) and the whole ghost of Dennis thing. It was way too stylized. I learned very little about her life and times and whether she could be considered a hero or a villain.

      That said. Hope all is well with you and yours.

      Best

      Ed

  2. So glad that you're doing so well! Hope you wore a mask tonight. Don't worry about what other people think. Your health is more important. They won't remember you anyway. Love you!

  3. Isn't it great to be prepared for the worst but have things go better than expected? Here's hoping the entire SCT process works that way for you!
