And, pictured here is Bob, who ran 16 miles yesterday in preparation for the San Diego Rock and Roll Marathon in May. I thought he looked rather dashing this morning. Maybe it was the tie.
Though today's high was about 63 degrees our ride in was still quite cold, about 28 degrees so we wore insulated biking gloves. My digits were still frozen almost numb for half the ride causing me to wonder why I couldn't be satisfied with just riding in the nice warm Element. The ice was mostly gone from the FUTS trail though, and the view of the San Francisco Peaks was really lovely. I saw a Mountain Jay along the way and felt comforted that spring is on its way.
Since I knew it would be pretty warm still after work I left the puffy jacket at home and wore my mustard JCrew swing jacket, purchased specifically for riding to work. I love the bright happy color and the empire waist cut. Khakis are part of my regular uniform. They go with everything, can be easily dressed up or down, and never look dated. Practically speaking, if I had pare down my wardrobe to 10 basic items, Gap straight cut khakis would be a reliable choice year after year.
Bob and my mom question the Dansko clogs, however. I swear I will master at high heals on a bike by this summer.
