That's probably because I rode my bicycle to work this morning, which is something I've been doing more often lately.
I've carefully researched the best route from my home to Great Lakes, and I've settled on one that avoids major traffic arteries and uses designated cycle paths and parks as much as possible.
If you can work out a route like that, you come to work less frustrated, and the brisk exercize in the morning makes you more alert and on your toes.

I should add that it's a good idea to check your fitness level with your physician before you start commuting by bike, especially if you haven't been in the habit of excercizing lately.
The American toy manufacturer seemed to be as paternalistic as the typical Japanese company with company picnics and all that.
