NOW I Remember!

When I went to get some coffee at work this afternoon, I found a cup of hot chocolate sitting in the machine, with no one around to claim it. Chuckling to myself, I wondered who would have dropped the coins in the slot, made the selection then left without their purchase. I mean really….

About 10 miles and one hard climb into my ride this afternoon, I reached down to grab my water bottle and found… nothing. Now who would ever take off on a ride and forget their water bottles? I mean really…

Actually, my memory is an integral part of my fitness regimen. For example, I’ll take off to the other side of the building to get something from the printer. Along the way, I decide to check my mailbox. Then maybe get a cup of coffee, stop by someone’s cubical. You know, really multi-tasking, making the most of the trip. After returning to my desk, I realize I never went to the printer. So, off I go on another lap. I’m sure our Lifesteps health coach would be proud of me.

Does this happen to you? If not, how do you prevent it? I need to know! If it does, well, welcome to the club.

Have forgotten my gloves once and my helmet a few times (though always realize that within a minute and make the ride back to get it). But the hot chocolate.....there must be a good story there.

Of course, the list of things I have forgotten that I offered up in the post (that would be water bottles) is hardly comprehensive, even when the subject is limited to bicycling. In addition to said forgotten item, I've left the garage (and sometimes gotten MUCH farther) without: helmet, gloves, glasses, wallet, money in wallet, pump, ...
