I have been able to ride the bike to work and around town lately again without the extra time it generally takes to layer up for the cold. I love to ride, but I sure hate getting so bundled up and wired into heated clothing that short trips are a major pain. So now, I can throw on my leather jacket, leave the chaps at home and use gloves that don't need to be plugged in to heat my hands. It is a totally free experience.
So today, again, I will ride to work. It is a little less than 20 miles, and takes about 30 minutes during the rush. I will enjoy it, as tonight as I rush home, I have to jump into a different uniform and Umpire a baseball game at the Major League field.
I jump between my passions. Today, I will dress the biker and head to work. Arriving at work I will dress the worker and do my job. Then I will reacquire the inner biker to get home, change my clothes and become the head umpire in charge of Field 1. But wait, if you have read this far, read a little further.
After the umpire gig, my wife and I are attending a class on how to raise and support a sports minded child.
