Speed Racer


A quick post to brag about my ride yesterday. It is the last week of school and my time is very limited, so I had to squeeze in my 1 hour ride. I decided to ride BALLS OUT (sooo classy! Charm schools are clamoring for me to join their faculty)

I rode 15.3 miles in one hour on the city streets and bike trail. This may not sound fast to you, but since you have to stop for stop lights, walkers, joggers, and geese (Picture: Geese at the park along the bike trail. Picture taken on during a run a while ago. I am not skilled enough to take pictures on the bike. I LOVE the fuzzy babies!)

This is my fastest mph average for this ride. It was about 93 degrees and I just kept pushing. Dear God, I am actually getting faster. Fast-ER mind you, not fast. But I will take it!

I'm not sure BALLS OUT is the appropriate term to describe speed. A felony yes, speed no.

Since that great athletic body of yours didn't come equipped with them I'll let it slide though!

Congrats on the anniversary, bike ride and runs. Baby anythings are so cute.

You sure you don't want to do IM FLorida in 09? There is supposedly going to be a big blogger get together there.

I can actually walk now! woo-hoo!
