Bike to Work, day 79: Surprise!

Surprise! I cut my hair (off)!  Leo, at Cesar’s Hair Design was great, and knew more about my condition than my doctor did.  The spot was growing, so I just took it all off.  Woo!

I didn’t ride yesterday, due to illness.  I stayed in bed most of the day, only leaving later to shave my head and run some other errands.  For more pics of my bald head, visit Darling Millie.

Hopefully, this will make me more aerodynamic!

I pushed and pushed then gave up.  Maybe I should start setting monthly record goals.  Having an attainable goal is the biggest training motivator I have, on a bike.

Welcome cat bloggers!  Please feel free to browse around the main site.  Wow, my site traffic more than doubled today.  Thanks Millie (and Mom)!

I pushed hard for a record, knowing there was little chance of matching or beating my best ever.  Instead, I was working for a best of the month.  Weather I got it or not, it proved to be the motivation I needed.

heh

The tanline is from my camelbak.

    Now that’s a different look!

  2. Now you kinda look like Dragonheart & Merlin but without the wrinkles. (Sphynx kitty bloggers)

    Daddy would like to shave his head too, but Mommy won’t let him. When he brings it up she tells him to go get another tattoo instead.

  3. Hi Mr. K!
    We like looking around here, thats a cute doggie in the helmet but once mom got to those pasta dishes we didn’t go any further, ’cause she bounced over to the cooking blog.
    Good luck with all your riding!

    Hey Mr. K,

    I think you look very good with your head shaved. Not everyone can pull that look off, but you most definitely do. I also like your tattoo. Hope you reach all of your riding goals this year.

    Toodles,
    Miss Kitty
