Temp got above zero (by 5 degrees) for the first time in over 48hrs. Felt rather balmy and I got the itch to ride outside. A little over an hour with the Beast. As I was riding along the ice encrusted Kenilworth Trail I started to daydream a bit and imagined the trail in spring with the smells of the earth being released from winter's grip. A smile emerged on my face, which seemed to spread and warm my entire body.
Felt good to be out, and I wanted to be out. That's a good sign. Burn-out is easing.
