The road ahead will be long, our climb will be steep…
[Barack Obama, President-Elect]

So why are these two women not wearing helmets? Admittedly, it’s great weather once again and shorts are all part of the gig, but your head needs protection. One out of three with helmet is not good enough. One out of three does not win races. That’s my speech to the women I passed today (I was on a motorbike with Ed; we were heading back to last nights’ election hosts so that I could retrieve the vehicle I had driven there.)

I listen to the analysis of Obama’s acceptance speech. When was the last time that I listened carefully to acceptance speeches?

The morning after feels very good indeed.
