Have alarm clocks failed you on your scheduled activity for the day? Well, mine did. Before I slept the night before, I made sure that I set my alarm clock so that I’d wake up by 6am for my 7am ride. Alarm clock……..FAIL!!!!

My mobile phone rang at 7.30am. My ride buddy Ryan A. called me. Got awaken by the call. Damn it! I’m freakin’ late! Told the guys to start pedaling and I’ll just follow. They insisted that they’ll wait for me at our usual spot in front of our former school Marist School in Marikina Heights.

Jumped out of my bed, started preparing (morning rituals, dress up in my cycling gear). Right before I left, I had to fill my 1.5L hydration pack with water. Whoa! Mom was preparing the usual awesome power breakfast for the weekend. Fried rice, fried eggs, tapa and longganisa (from Taal, Batangas), and brewed coffee. Awesome as it may seem, I had to skip it because I was running late. Told mom I’ll have it when I come back.

Met the guys at 8:11am at the usual spot and started pedaling to our usual playground….Monterey Hills Subdivision. ‘Twas late for a morning ride (well, in our standards), but what the heck! We pedaled anyways.
