    The Gift

    With crazy work hours (I am on the executive team of a startup in its second year), crazy travel (2-5 days per week), a stupid-long commute when I'm not traveling (70 miles each way in Atlanta traffic), the worst weather I've seen in Atlanta in decades (rain every weekend) and four kids (with activities every weekend), I've learned to appreciate ANY RIDE I get.

    But a 70-minute midweek ride on some fabulous singletrack in the north Atlanta suburbs is an absolute GIFT!

    It's been a great day
    I live with fear and danger every day. And on the weekends she lets me go mountain biking.

    Surprised you ever have any time to ride. Thanks for putting my shitty work schedule into perspective. I've got it made compared to you!

    This.
    Earnest Hemingway once said "The world is a fine place and worth fighting for." I agree with the second part.

    I'd rather have a horrible work schedule than no work schedule!
