Snowy bike paths

The snow covering the local bike paths reminds me of a ski tour I did last year.

I skiied from my house to the office for a little over an hour. My best morning commute EVER. :)

The Goose Creek bike path went right by the office. Naturally the only time I fell? Within view of the office window. My co-worker (at the time) Matt said "GOOD MORNING MAGS!" as I was getting up from falling in the snow bank. Hee hee

Haha! That's great - skiing to work. We had a 24" blizzard here in Duluth a month ago or so and I saw a guy carrying skis along the street in the afternoon. I asked him if he'd skiied to work that morning and he said he had - - right down the street!

It was a great way to commute to work. I felt so great by the time I showed up at the office.

Now, I have to travel ~20 minutes up the highway to get to work. Coffee and NPR is not nearly as good as skiing to work. ;)
