13.24 In 57.48

In support of my commuting sanity I did as I said I would today and biked to and from work. Just for the hell of it I hit the stopwatch at the redlight at Centinela and Sepulveda and decided to ride all-out, full-tilt and gung-ho hard as I could for the 13.24 miles homeward.

And faster than a gridlocked car dangit if I didn’t come in for a landing 57 minutes and 48 seconds (and two full buckets of sweat) later.

I was cookin’, baby!

Will Campbell arrived in town via the maternity ward at Good Sam Hospital way back in OneNineSixFour and has never stopped calling Los Angeles home. Presently he lives in Silver Lake with his wife Susan, their cat Rocky, dogs Terra and Hazel, and a red-eared slider turtle named Mater. Blogging since 2001, Will's web endeavors extend back to 1995 with laonstage.com, a comprehensive theater site that was well received but ever-short on capital (or a business model). The pinnacle of his online success (which speaks volumes) arrived in 1997, when much to his surprise, a hobby site he'd built called VisuaL.A. was named "best website" in Los Angeles magazine's annual "Best of L.A." issue. He enjoys experiencing (and writing about) pretty much anything creative, explorational and/or adventurous, loves his ebike, is a better tennis player than he is horr golfer, and a lover of all creatures great and small -- emphasis on "all."
