First bike fall ever as an adult

One of four security camera companies i purchased from.

 

Rode a bicycle 25 miles roundtrip to visit a former Disney Institute colleague at Disney Institute for a 7am meeting yesterday.

To maximize my time while cycling, a phone call began at 6am as i peddled past our mailbox.

The fall (yes, fall, not call) came at 6:55am on a wooden boardwalk next to Highway 192 near Celebration Place.

Was on the phone (Skype) with a Disney College Program alumnus who moved to Australia to get out of her comfort zone.

Thank you Stephanie for being my only “witness”.

What’s astonishingly significant to me is the fact that i’ve bicycled the equivalent of twice around the Equator as an adult, never wearing a helmet.

Haven’t done this since i was younger

This used to be a daily one-way trip to work, at Disney’s Contemporary Resort.

 

Haven’t done this since i was younger. Went for a 30-mile bike ride yesterday.

When we permanently relocated to Walt Disney World in 1984, the first three years i was riding a bicycle to work. We were a one-car family. Cheryl got the car.

In 1984 it was a daily 36-mile roundtrip ride from our roach-infested Kissimmee apartment to Disney’s River Country Water Park and back.

From 1985-1987, it was a 30-mile one-way trip from our 1,100 square foot starter home to Disney’s Contemporary Resort.

The ride home was in my neighbor’s pickup truck. We both had the same 4pm-12am shift with identical days off. Gene was a washing machine mechanic at Disney’s only laundry at the time. There are four laundries now.

Did You Get Enough Rest?

Did you get enough rest last night?

Rest is way under-rated.  Have been struggling with this one for about two months. This is unusual, because I focus very hard on rest.  It’s one of our critical success factors in staying in top form – mentally, physically, spiritually, and even financially.

First the trip to Finland, followed by two solid months of very busy travel schedules.  And with the World Championships under my belt, there was no looming big, motivating goal.

Bottom line, we all have to figure this out.  If we don’t, we are doomed. It’s a vicious cycle.  Always has been, always will be.  But you already knew that, right?
