Night rider

I didn't get on the treadmill today. I meant to do it this morning and then the morning passed and I never got down there. By the afternoon I decided I'd skip it today and I hoped Josh wouldn't notice, lol. He noticed at 9:15 this evening.

He tried to talk me into going down there but the last thing I want to do at 9pm is drag myself onto the treadmill. But he won't let me quit so we decided to take a bike ride together instead. I was tired, I had just eaten and I reeeeally didn't want to go. But I went. And it was kind of awesome.

The sun was just starting to set and the sky was pink. I loved riding through the neighborhood and seeing kids playing in their yard, couples sitting on their front porches and people taking evening walks with their dogs. We rode over to the park and there were people having a barbecue, people taking a walk, a family playing soccer and kids trying to get a few more minutes of playing in before the sun set.

There are fountains in the duck pond that looked pink in the sunset. The temperature was perfect and the sky was clear and pretty. It was peaceful and beautiful and the perfect way to end the day.

I sometimes forget how much I love to ride my bike and how much I love the park. I'm glad I decided to drag myself out there when I didn't think I really wanted to. It was the best part of my day.
