I admit on a day like today, gearing up to bike to the farmer's market, to the post office, to do assorted errands was, well, tough.
Instead of getting a running start, I opted for a second cup of coffee and waited for the torrential downpoour to turn to a manageable drizzle.
But I find it's a lot like those early morning workouts: you may go kicking and screaming (or yawning and whining) but once you get there, the fun begins.
I had a nice ride, the sun eventually showed up, and the area got at least some of the much-needed rain it's been waiting for.
More on farmers, rain, produce and the free bike-service waiting for you at area farmer's markets a bit later...
