Day Ten: Alex T.'s 45 Club Bangers Ride 8.16.17
I usually work out in the morning, but I needed a little extra sleep and Alex T. in my life. This ride was packed in the studio, but all of the riders in studio were all business and no joy. I'm the rider who will high five-fist bump a stranger on the bike next to me after a hard interval on a ride, I always have a smile for an instructor and whoop it up at the slightest question from them. But New York as a city turns you into a person who lives behind a "shields up" persona and we, New Yorkers, aren't so good at at lowering the shields even when we are safe and in a joyful place like a class with Alex T.
Sorry, the folks were so quiet for you Alex. I was whooping it up at home for you.
Oh, and by the way! I'm 10% of the way through this streak.
