core | bike commute

At the gym this morning all my hip abductor exercises were really tough… Oh well, I have not done them in about one week so that's what I get.

More fantastic Seattle spring weather so I took the long way home. Yes!

As luck would have it, as soon as I hit the Burke-Gilman Trail two guys started 'racing' me. Now first of all I'm riding a single-speed cruiser with platform pedals. But the intent was obvious, being a racer myself I can totally tell when someone is trying to assert themselves and these days I usually just let it go. 1) The Burke is not a great place to race and 2) I'm here to enjoy the scenery, listen to my music and people watch.

Not today.

It's a fun challenge to see if I can keep up with (or sometimes pass/drop) people while on my commuter bike and so that's what I did.

Pedal, pedal, pedal!!!

I won. And there you have it, Martin is a shallow human being. :)
