bad dreams

Every time I fell asleep last night, I was greeted with terrifying nightmares.
All. Night. Long.

As I lay awake, my thoughts turned to cyclocross...specifically, the Mercer Cup of years ago.
The fly-over.
The dirt section by the waterfront.
Richard Fries on the mic.
Watching the elite women stage during their call-ups.
Georgia Gould.
Mo Bruno Roy.
The plywood plaque/trophy.
The mud.
The mud the mud the mud.
My bike.
Big smiles.

I need to get back on a bike.
I need my tail bone to not hurt like this and I need to feel athletic again.
Baby girl is not the cause of my bedtime woes...
inactivity is.
