For several years now, the UC crew has been getting together for lunch rides during the work week. The rides usually turn into races and that's fine. It's good training. Painful but good for the body.
Today was the first time we got together for lunch. No ride. Just lunch.
Miles without a helmet just doesn't look right. Brandon wearing a shirt with a collar aint right either. And Rico's legs don't intimidate as much in jeans. It just didn't feel right. There was no trash talking. Nobody got dropped. Too much talking and not enough suffering.
And yes. I felt very ashamed for ordering chips and a soda with my meal while Miles and Brandon both went without chips and had water/juice to drink.
I can't wait to get back to normal and go ride during lunch.
