Come July, I've been a biking fool. My sixth ride came on the 9th of July! My work life is heavy in June, but eases in July. And July in Seattle may be perfect biking weather. It seems like it's 72 and sunny every day. As a bonus, that weather accentuates the wonderful Pacific NW scenery.

Importantly, my eating has been markedly improved the last few weeks. I've recommitted to whole foods and greatly reduced my consumption of processed foods. Truthfully, I felt better the very first day I cut processed foods back. And I think it's helping me ride faster. This week, I nearly equaled my personal record on my super hilly local bike trail. This picture is not great, but it shows off my enthusiasm after that great ride - and my new yellow bike shirt!
I hope you're having a great July, too. Starting next week, I'll have a series of posts on my rededication to eating healthy, whole foods.
