Yesterday marked my re-entry into the wonderful world of cycling in Kansas. I'd forgotten how nice it is to have an entire road to yourself, to have motorists move over a whole lane as they pass, even to have people stop and ask, "You doin' okay?" Unfortunately, I'd also forgotten how demoralizing a stiff 20 MPH headwind can be. Of course, my little bit of wind was nothing compared to this year's IMAZ, but reminding myself of that did nothing to help me as soon as I turned south.
Additionally, my parents apparently do not eat food. There's not much to work with here. I'm going to have to stock the refridgerator and pantry with healthy edibles like beans and tofu and fresh fruits and veggies! Speaking of, it's probably about time for me to share a recipe . . .
