Today was the Maui Century Ride, and I wasn’t going. I figured it was a $35 donation in good faith. I did make my way to the start around 8:30am to check in and get my shirt. I was sniffly and bundled up, so people avoided me like the plague. I hate being sick around others. I went home and tended to my second batch of eggplant bacon. I had bought eggplant at the farmers market yesterday and made a nice batch, much nicer than the first one. I was excited to see how it was going to turn out.
I went back around noon to the finish of the century and soaked up the sun for a bit, visited with friends and congratulated them on a strong ride. I was starting to feel a bit better and wished I had been on the ride, but knew my lungs couldn’t have taken it, by any stretch of the imagination.
