…or the UPS or FedEX or whoever/whatever/however…I am so confused….
Look what I found on my door step when I got home this afternoon!!
My new CycleOps….ok, our new CycleOps…The Hubs corrected me when I told him over the phone it had arrived. Sheesh, really? Fine OUR new Cycle Ops.
The Hubs came home and assembled it for us…LB was all up in the mix.
Apparently the assembly was pretty easy, it was done before I even knew he had the box open.
One day LB is going to kill me for pictures like this one…
We had to give it a quick spin. We are still waiting on the block for the front tire and I have to order a speedometer so that I can know how far I have gone.
I’m pretty excited to set this puppy up in front of either the TV and Netflix or my computer for Hulu! I have some mad TV to catch up on and I am going to need something to keep me occupied as I ride for hours in my living room or kitchen.
LB had a
small huge breakdown when he realized he could not fit on this and to pour salt in the wound his bike was too small to fit as well…
Yep, it’s pretty sweet….
Please excuse my stark white, cold and ugly kitchen….We have been here almost three months and I finally put some paint colors up to test them out:
I have picked the two colors on your left, the bottom left and the one in the middle above it. Now we just need a painter to come and paint if for us. I wouldn’t mind painting, I just don’t have the time and I have a bad track record of not doing a good job…
Today I got in a 3 mile tempo run in Breaking Pace’s garage! It was perfect since LB was out for MLK day. It was also FREEZING out in the garage in the beginning. We started out and I could see my breath. But as I kept upping the speed I slowly began to warm up. Before long I was dripping sweat. Her treadmill faces the brick wall of the interior of her garage. I was picking out shapes and creature-looking designs on them, kind of like cloud watching. I saw a dinosaur and a crocodile…I’ll have to ask her what she has seen on that wall! It made me wish I had a set up like that, where I could just walk out to my garage or even screened in porch to get in a workout. She has a stair stepper and treadmill! Weights and of course the Shake Weight, which is no joke people.
Do you have a home gym?
I would love the convenience of having it all right here at home but I also enjoy actually going to the gym, kind of like to see and be around other people. But last week when I went to the gym on the Air Force base it was a stinking show-off fest. Annoying. Everyone was just mulling around, “Luuk at my mos-les…they are He-youuuuuge.” you know what I mean?
And finally, I messed up BIG time. I messed around and put off registering for the upcoming Tobacco Road half marathon. Now it is sold out. WHAT? Who would have thought? I had no idea it would sell out. This is just another aspect of being new to the area and not being familiar with the racing scene. But, my friend JK texted me and said that there are a number of slots open, charity slots. The price is ONE HUNDRED AND TWENTY DOLLARS. The deal is though, that 100% of that $120 goes to charity.
Would you do it? The charity is the Wounded Warrior Project…I already know my answer.
What is the most you have ever paid for a race entry fee?
I can’t really recall the answer to this, but I believe the Seattle Rock n Roll half was $120 or something? Anything over $85 is too much for a half marathon in my opinion. My Half Iron was quite a bit too.
And how do you answer this question, when asked by those who just don’t get us: Why would you pay to go run when you can just run for free anywhere?
Well, because it is fun to be around people who get me and clearly you are NOT one of those peeps. Now excuse me while I go pay $120 to run 13.1 miles the day before my birthday.
