I had planned on discussing weather – the cold of the night and the sunshine during the day. The fact that Michelle apparently has the remote for the A/C unit, since it is now pumping out warm rather than cold air. And, the fact that I am sitting here on my “down day” muttering as I go through compture files.

But then, I got roped into going over to the PX. Mark bought a bicycle yesterday. The same under $100 bike that I had purchased in the UK. Now he was looking for others who might be interested in riding for PT. Another office mate has been having repeated injuries from too much running. Me? I have tried the gym a couple of times and it is just ugly – too many people and not enough time I can keep the treadmill. Running in a group is horrible, just not my thing.

But biking? Really hard to talk while biking. Opportunity to see more of the post as we ride the perimeter road. Chance to increase fitness. And, I can pass it along to the next group.

Grey bike, white helmet, lights and lock. I am all set.

Anyone have reflective loud colored tape?

    Remember that you are PT test exempt at 60.

    Benefits from physical fitness are rumored to continue for most of rest of life.

    Suggestion, find some of the air support crew, don’t they still use
    it to decorate helmets and important stuff?
