Loyal readers of this blog (as if they are a common as unicorns) may have noted no activity lately. Strava followers have surely noticed the same. There's a reason: Illness.
And not just a cold, but a bonus ear infection that even put a stop to my daily bike commute. I missed eight days, which is the longest I can remember being off the bike in years.
My ears are still a mess, and I have trouble hearing. But the Doctor put me on meds that are supposed to help. After my layoff I rode to work today. At last.
