My cousin Heather was in town this week. We toured the National Arboretum and the Mall and visited "The Awakening" on bikes today. I also changed a flat tire for the first time with some help from a cyclist who happened by. We've had dinner, brunch and dinner together but I think we've managed not to gain an ounce with the riding we did. We're going to try not to let seven years pass before we get together again.
