My #FavouriteThing today was going for a bike ride with Kid #2. I enjoyed it for a couple of reasons. First off, it was just great to spend time with my kid. Second, it was beautiful bike riding through the (paved) bike trails in Whistler. And third, I am always trying to find exercise that I can do in this often decrepit body of mine. I love running, but running has not been loving me for the last few months. But because biking is non-impact, turns out it might be a great form of exercise for me. Today I rode a bike that didn’t fit me well (it was too small), and it was the first time is been on a bike for 15+ years, but I still had fun and enjoyed myself without aggravating my hips or knees or back. I’ll be back for more.

I also really enjoyed seeing my girlfriend today who lives in Whistler. We don’t see each other in person very often, even though we really don’t live all that far apart. Our kids and my friends’ kids all went skating and then swimming, and we went for coffee and caught up. I love spending time with my friend.
