I lived in Dallas for 18 years and never once rode my bike around White Rock Lake.
My dad & I fixed that today. We took our hybrid bikes down the trail extension and around the lake. I can't believe we never did that when I was growing up.
But we did it today. We dodged runners and other cyclists, learned how to use our gears, checked out the scenery, rode more than we meant to, almost got lost, and had more fun than I could have imagined. It was awesome.
Rather than be sad I missed out doing this when I lived in Dallas, I am thankful that I get the opportunity to try new things and make up for missed opportunities and create new memories and appreciate my life. I am so very thankful for today.
Thanks for the ride, Dad.
