A hard goodbye
Posted 06/18 by Ruthie BenDor
Today was supposed to be a short but hilly bike ride through the eastern part of the Berkshires. I cheated and didn’t pedal a bit of it, but I don’t feel guilty at all.
I had the opportunity to spend yesterday evening with someone very special to me, and we decided to take a country drive together today rather than say goodbye this morning. She’s on her way back to Boston now, and I’m hanging out at the beautiful Pittsfield State Forest by myself, trying but mostly failing to cheer up.
Despite not biking at all, today has been the hardest day yet by far. Here’s hoping the morning brings more cheery thoughts—at least the weather’s supposed to be nice!
