I got a bike! I love bikes, it’s as close to horseback riding as I can get without dealing with horse people.
I also got new running shoes because my old ones fell apart and hurt my ankles so naturally neon shoes were my only choice. Excuse my beauty by the way, what you are seeing on my face is extreme, near manic excitement. Oh and yes I did wear that shirt, I like to be seen while riding, safety first, even if all of the teenagers I rode by stared and snickered, I do not care. Let’s see who is laughing when I’m not a pancake in the road. Not to imply that they will be road pancakes but I just know I won’t be, because of that shirt…and those shoes…and my special workout pants with a neon stripe down the side…and my helmet light.
On another note, it is like 90 here and I am dying. The dogs are refusing to take part in “outside” and I too share their feelings. Hopefully it will cool off early enough to take them to the dog park but not so late so that we miss the dog park. it’s a ruff (haha) life.
I am looking forward to my evening bike ride with Tom very much, we’re working on getting our bike legs back so we can take them on the trails because last minute we decided to get mountain bikes which was something I didn’t know I wanted until I saw the first purple bike in the store and needed it. I was somewhat surprised because until that moment I was picturing myself on one of those cruiser bikes with the big wheels and a front basket that I could carry around classic novels and loaves of bread in, despite my gluten intolerance. I was also talked out of the child’s 5+ unicorn helmet that I wanted to buy because it was the only one that fit my head (I have an alarmingly small noggin apparently) and while I am a little sad about that I do think the helmet that I ended up with (8+) is fine because again…the helmet light.
Well, I’m off to melt into a puddle of nothingness or to purchase a last minute plane ticket to Antarctica, have a lovely day everyone.
