Some nice comments and e-mails have helped. :-) thanks.
I rode my bike, 12 miles in 46 minutes, not fast enough but it was dragging and in bad shape. I promptly took it into the shop to have minor repairs just in time for Saturday. I know I'm just in a panic about stepping outside of that box. This is the year that I stop saying someday and actually accomplish things. I also totally ripped out my sock. Feels good.
