Chicago is 56 degrees in January !

I'm not sure, but I think it might very well be a Mortal Sin (if not, at least a Venial Sin) to not do something outdoors today.

Mid 50's in January in Chicago is, well, not normal. If this is the product of Global Warming then I don't want to recycle anymore (just joking).

I went out with the Elmhurst Bicycle Club today and rode about 1.5 hours. It was truly a pleasure to be outside riding with no snow on the ground, no risk of ice/falling, and no balaclava. Being with friends and enjoying our fitness is really what loving life is about in my world. These days usually are in the Spring and Summer and so I was glad to have enjoyed such a day in the dead of a Chicago winter.

Please help make a difference -
