Commute Loop – 2023.11.30

Back on the Wandrer train and adding more miles to my commutes. I was pleasantly surprised with the stretch of Patrick between the Beltway and Decatur. It was a fun section to fly down with it having a slight downhill and smooth asphalt. Sure there were a couple rough sections near some major intersections, but once I was past those the road smoothed right out. Had decent grin on my face for most of it.

The rest of the ride in went well until Harmon. I was traveling east and a big rig pulled out in front of me from Lamar Court. I was able to get slowed up easily, but damn if it wasn’t frustrating. Honestly, it got me more angry than it should have and certainly put a damper on my morning.

I got a late start riding home because I got tied up with some minor work snafus, but once I got going it was smooth sailing. Riding close to 60 miles today was definitely testing the legs and stamina. I was certainly feeling it near the end of the ride. Funny how you can do 100 miles straight without issue, but break it up with a large 6-8 break in the middle and you feel every mile toward the end.
