Alexandra – Blog Post #2

So these past couple of weeks have not been easy. I have been fighting a particular difficult bout of sinusitis and let me tell you, riding a bike without being able to breathe is a quick reality check!

I did find though that being sick and being car-free made the challenge hard to manage. Standing outside waiting for a bus does not feel good, especially if it’s chilly. And then you have to protect others from getting your sickness on the bus.

I’ve found I’ve been driving to make up the difference; I could not imagine trying to bus groceries back to my apartment while wheezing and coughing.

I’m beginning to feel better, so I hope to finish out the month strong back on my bike and on the bus!
