I left my house at 5:30 this morning to catch a 5:45 spinning class at the Y. I had my doggie pj's on over my bike shorts because it was cold I don't have any sweats that aren't running tights. Not very exciting but that little tidbit lends to my falsely perceived notion of the activity level at the gym at that ungodly hour. I figured only crazies or police officers or my friend Ann (who is training for an Ironman and teaches the class) workout in pre-dawn hours. She wouldn't mind the pj's.
As I was leaving my neighborhood I saw a Big Buck galloping through open space. He looked so majestic and sure of himself and yet so fragile to me since I am married to an animal-loving hunter who believes in population-control and humane demise (i.e. quick shot vs. splat into the grill of an Escalade). The hunting debate aside - and yes I respect many views - This buck was BUCK chiseled, handsome and if I were a doe he'd be my boyfriend.
The Urban Dictionary defines Buck as a slang term for wild, ridiculous, extreme. Used to describe something so amazingly fierce, it's almost not possible - in a good way.
At 5:40 in the morning the Y was Buck Wild. Busy, buzzing with fitness minded maniacs and I thought it was cool. I forgot I had on my pajama bottoms but those nut bags didn't even notice. I took my pj pants off and climbed on the saddle of that bike got busy. Way fun.
Nothing like bucking in the early morning.
Did I just say that?
