Bike, run, bike!

I biked to work today for the first time since early December. The snow and ice has been with us for quite some time. Looking at the weather forecast I'm hoping I can do it again on Friday. Except for being fairly cold it was a pretty good ride. Between the brand new pot holes, patches of deep mud and random spots of slush I was glad, more than once, that I had my small block cyclocross tires on instead of road tires. Part of my ride takes me through Gallup park, which straddles the Huron river. I noticed that it is still mostly frozen over. I have no idea how Christi 'the swimmer' swam in it last Friday.  Even with a wet suit that's cold! My lunch time run was a little more challenging because my legs, unused to riding yet, were already pretty well exercised.
