Back in the USA

Recently retuned from four magical weeks in Japan, I am readjusting to daily life in Providence--maneuvering around glass and potholes and big cars edging me off the road. Groceries must be bought, money earned, and the house kept in order. Mostly though, I'm trying to spend time on my bike, and to do so more deliberately and effectively than I have in the past. I want to race faster, stronger and smarter. I am not an athlete; I have never trained for a sport until now.
