bikes, bridges and new phones

Can I just say real quick that today is the most beautiful and perfect of fall days in Portland.
So sunny and crisp and chilled.
I went running after work last night (I'll pause for a gasp because I rarely run, ever).
Then, I rode my bike to work today (allow for second pause...). I decided to ride my bike after I looked at the weather last night and felt the beginning pains of sore legs. It's best if I keep them in motion so as not to feel the pain of working out once every four months.
The run and the bike ride were perfect.
I might even do it again.
Back to the reason I am writing this post anyway. I got a new phone, a fancy phone with all the frills. The best thing about it is that I am paying less per month than I was before because I am now on a family plan with some friends, score.
One of the main reasons I wanted a fancy phone was navigation, but I'll write about that another time.
More so, I wanted a fancy phone for the fun camera apps and mobile upload.
I am all about it. I'll probably be an over-poster, but I can't help it. It's just that so many times during the day, I think, "this is so cool/pretty/awkward/strange, somebody needs to see this." and now it's possible. I can share those moments with people. YES.
A couple shots from my ride to and from work over the Broadway Bridge.
Such a pretty ride. I am lucky to live where I do.
