A Mighty Fine SPARKIN' Day!
Sunday, July 11, 2010
I was a regular Energizer Bunny today...! Got up and biked to the Binghamton Historic Bridge Pedal www.gobroomecounty.com/b
, networked with a person from DOT about the greenways project and upcoming developments www.ptny.org/greenways/i
. Enhancing the walk-ability, bike-ability of our community is SUCH an important thing and tax dollars SO well spent enhancing the health and quality of life of the residents of our community!
So on my way home I'm thinking....hmmm...10 miles to Binghamton, 10 miles for the Bridge Pedal, 10 miles back home. 30 mile total so far. But! If I'm going to be working up to a century bike ride in September...I've taken the plunge to do the City to Shore ride for Multiple Sclerosis biking from Philadelphia to Ocean City and back again the next day. 175 miles of biking in two days...whew!
So in getting to this afternoon's SparkRally at Dorchester Park I decided I would bike there and back...adding yet ANOTHER 20+ miles to my total today which put me over 50 miles...woo HOO! PLUS I kayaked with my fellow local SparkPeople members at the park this afternoon! What fun on a *picture perfect* weather day!
Just tallied up my calorie burn for everything...only 4,476 cals! :-)
BUT: I was one whupped puppy by the time I got home! I even took a nap! That is something that happens only a handful of times a year! Now I'm blowing the advantages of the nap by catching up with everyone and being up too late...lol!
It was wonderful to meet some of the newer members of our local Team and to scheme & dream of fun stuff to do together in the future!
Night all...have a GREAT WEEK!
