“It is never too late to be what you might have been.” -George Eliot, English novelist The holiday parties are over. We now find ourselves back in the office and back in the old routine.

I believe I still have some game. Let me share some thoughts on the last six weeks: Several days post-surgery I started feeling like my “old self” which means I put my bike on the indoor trainer and did some riding.
