The angel won, this time

This morning's ride was great. Perfect weather... again. How much longer can this really last? Even though I was sooooo tempted to stay in the warm bed, I got up and did it.

It's like having the devil and the angel on either side of your pillow:

Angel: Jim, it's time to get up and ride.
Devil: Screw that, it's 5:15 a.m., it's dark and this bed is warm.
Angel: Its' 55 degrees out, plenty warm to ride. Come on, get up.
Devil: GTH angel, Jim, you rode hard all season, now its time to relax, sleep late, enjoy life.
Angel: Jim, in a month it'll be cold. You'll cherish the memories of these last few rides all winter while you're on the trainer.
Devil: Memories, schmemories. Warm and cozy here, right now. Cold and dark outside. No brainer. And by the way, screw the trainer. You should sleep late all winter. Yeah... and while I'm at it... screw training at all. Go out, drink more and stay up late.

Weel now... that's just blasphemy.
