Last week as I was scurrying around prepping for my LONG ride, my husband stopped me in my tracks and casually said, “How’s it going?” My immediate reaction (which stayed in my head fortunately) was something like “Why are you talking to me right now? I need to get ready for my ride. The sooner I start my ride, the sooner I finish my ride and I have so many other things to do, so I need to start my ride ASAP!” I later looked back at this reaction with disdain. My husband was stopping me to fondly ask me how I was doing and my reaction was one of “don’t bother me, as I have to get ready for my ride.” Wrong. This was just wrong in so many ways. It almost made me sick to my stomach. I quickly realized I needed to take a step back and put things into perspective.
