Rainy Day Ride
By Mike Hecker
I rode my bike around in the pouring rain Sunday and thought about a lot of things that are happening in my new adult life. While I didn't set out of the door with the intention of having some kind of "spiritual moment," for lack of better terms, it was nice to just get some time to think. I really enjoyed the time I spent getting soaked, inevitably turning parts of my bike into rust, and just spending time by myself to think about the changes in life that happen as we get older. This theme of getting older is something I'm struggling with, I guess. Not even that 24 going on 25 is old at all, which I understand, I just find myself thinking about it a lot. I don't think everyone should go out and walk, run, or ride around in the rain, but maybe just slow down for a few minutes and take into account what life has thrown at you.
