Yesterday was my big commute to get a haircut. The weather was gorgeous—68 and sunny with a gentle breeze. I came home from the gym after a leg workout that left me sweaty but energized, grabbed some lunch, and headed out. It was a relatively quick 4.7-mile ride there, mostly downhill and mostly trail. At the salon, I wallowed in the luxury of getting my hair washed that in some respects seemed silly because I was just going to put my helmet back on but I love having someone wash my hair so what the heck. After a quick cut and blow dry, I was out the door again and on my bike. Honestly, I felt like a kid riding home from the candy store, unencumbered and free. Even the uphill grade was fun…even the really, really steep parts. My hair was a little flatter (if not a total helmet head) but it was so worth it!
