No shame in my game
Lately I have been walking up a lot of hills with my bike. You see, my job is 60% meetings- meetings all over town. I don’t have the option of getting to work early, changing clothes and freshening up. The best I can hope for is to find a restroom wherever my meeting is for a quick touch up. I love that my job has me out from under a desk, but it does have certain challenges.
If I am running from one meeting to another and want to arrive fresh and clean, I walk up any steep hills that may be on the route. I used to ride up them to be a badass, now I care less about that and more about having cute hair and not overheating! After one too many meetings sweaty and out of breath, I am taking the easy way out. During the winter it actually seems worse, since I am dressed perfectly for regular riding but much too warm for the hills.
After my last meeting of the day, I always ride up the massive hill by my house, glad not to have to worry about arriving home sweaty!
Anyone else do this?
