"Looking Good"

Stopping at a stoplight in East Ridge coming back from the dentist. The window of the car next to me rolled down to reveal two young african-american women.  "How old are you?" the one in the passenger seat asked.  "52" I admitted.  "Wow, you are looking good!!!"  She looked as though she knew a thing or two about looking good. I was given the thumbs up as they drive off.

   Its always nice to get a thumbs up and as I get older, the unexpected "You look good!" becomes extra sweet.  And maybe, I planted a seed for the idea of looking good and bike riding in their minds.

   The best kind of advocacy.
