I have a friend who occasionally facebooks me and we belly-ache about balance. You know, trying to find time to do it all: ride the bike, be a dad, be a husband, go to the gym, work etc. Its hard. Trying to find time to pursue your own goals while also attending to the other items in your life that are important or necessary. I joke that balance is something you acheive while you're on your way from one extreme to the other!
This has been a personal struggle of mine for the last ten years. When my daughter was born, I essentially gave up on trying to ride my bike in any meaningful way. Granted I was a stay at home dad and I had retired from racing bikes as a pro. But, I recall I couldn't figure out how to have it all.
