“Healthy Fear”


 Its finally a nice Saturday here. I started my walking and running regiment already. Its soon I know, but with the narrow roads and no sidewalks and absolute fear of getting hit by a car this will be my new daily exercise activity…To be sure its not boring and much safer the riding the bike. I will still ride in the summer but I will have to put the bike on the back of the car and bring it to where I want to ride…I call it a “Healthy fear” because of the long recovery and of coarse the pain involved. Its not fun anymore because I am always thinking of the Drug addicts and Drunks driving fast, coming behind me and not seeing me or misjudging distance and then you know what…I’ve heard all the excuses and the “I’m sorry’s” and “I’ll never use or drink again”, I want to hear especially if it concearns me… That’s if I surive the crash.. No, thank you…I knew it was like this when I moved here… I’ll take the good with the bad…I have one last ride to do here this season and its about 30 miles from here..Maybe next week, weather permiting. I did go to all those places the lady suggested and was very successful. Its touresty but OK. I pefer no tourists and isolation but it was nice and I will return at a later date. I did get some nice old building pictures….. Hang in there guys…
