1) I got a bike on Thursday. Maybe you read about it?
2) My backpack is 22 pounds. Including the laptop.
3) I’m ::cough:: alottapounds ::cough:: no really I’m ::cough:: reallyreallyalottapounds ::cough:: fat.
4) It took me ONLY 45 minutes to bike all my pounds to work.
Proof by 4 that I’m insane. You’ll excuse me now while I go take a well-deserved shower.
P.S.: Just in case this isn’t clear: When I looked at the route I could take to get to work, I guesstimated the total distance at about 9km – there was a scale on the map, but they’re all curves and LovelyWife told me that the map was not exact anyways. I figured if I could start by biking this in one hour to get to work and 75 minutes to head back, I’d be a happy fat man. I thought that 45 minutes in would be what I could hope for by the end of the summer. To hit 45 minutes on the first day makes me really happy. Of course I know this mostly means that I estimated badly, but please don’t burst my bubble already. 😉
Told you I was crazy.
Edit: Google maps says that it’s 8.85528 km (5.50242 mi).
Clicking makes it bigger.
