As I was going through my morning chores routine I made a deal with my dieting self. If I stepped on the scale and the numbers weren’t lower than yesterday, then I’d “punish” myself with a bike ride.
Sure enough the numbers on the scale didn’t change so much as a tenth of a pound from the morning before so I saddled up and went forth to complete the part of Saturday’s ride through Griffith Park that I wasn’t able to because of a flat and severe tire laceration I got in Elysian Park. Lovely day. Beautiful ride. Better late than never.
And I came away with a new favorite shot of me in Griffith Park, snapped by my handlebar cam (not that I had an old one):
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."
