I have to admit, when I am alone I don't really notice that I get all the red lights. When others are with me, they sure notice. I am surprised that anyone will ride with me, or drive with me for that matter. Me hearty says he schedules extra travel time to a destination if I will be in the car with him. Apparently, I get every red light all the time. The other day, the kid who is 'it' must have been on a bathroom break because I got a green wave. I hit every green light on the way home. I noticed this because I didn't get a chance to sit and admire the sign twirlers on the side of the road, or stop and catch my breath. By the time I got to the last intersection with a light I was pedalling hard just to win the game. I don't expect the state of the universe to change permanently. I know I will still be labelled the red light girl but on this day I enjoyed surfing the green wave.
If for some reason I have to stop during my race in Leadville, I have plenty of practice starting again! 'Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal; nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude'- Thomas Jefferson.
