A few weeks ago, a new acquaintance told me about "The Day" which happens every spring. "The Day" is the first day of the year where temperatures reach higher than 40 degrees. On this day, everyone goes outside to enjoy the warmth, wearing short sleeves. She laughed about how 40 degrees seems so warm after making it through the winter.
Friends, today was above 40 degrees, and it was most assuredly not "The Day."
At 4:30 when I raced the sun to our finish lines, I learned the important truth that a wet bicycle seat seems much colder than a frozen bicycle seat. Note to Self: When "The Day" comes, take a towel to dry off my seat before hitting the road.
