But ya know what? As long as you feel good, there's nothing better to the soul and health than getting on your bike and going out for a ride...be it short of long!
I remember spending chemo days hugging the toilet then feeling well enough to do a rip to the foothills. THAT was my meditation and relaxation.
I'm up north in Roseville (by Sacramento). I would love to meet you and keep you company on some rides! I'll coordinate with my husband and few other fellow riders to plan a ride your way in the next few months.
See you soon!
Pyxie, I'm glad to here you are cancer free for three years. I like you,find riding to be good therapy. January first this year I discovered I had colon cancer, I had surgery the next day and it was gone! My surgeon performed a colectomy and the pathology report said stage 2, so far no chemotherapy has been prescribed.
Twenty six days post op and I'm feeling great. I look forward to this up coming ride and meeting you and Mike. Please keep me in the loop.
