Okay, I've completed my marathon goals, I'm a Marathon Maniac, I'm moving on to the next goal which is a Tri: run, bike, swim!
Disney was hot, crowded and fun all at the same time. Here is my finish line pic.
The excitement of marathons has worn off. My next goal, to learn all over how to ride a bike (it's been decades) and to learn all over how to swim (it's been decades)!
So I've had this bike for months. Initially, I took it for a spin around the block but it was getting dark so I waited to get lights. I was really scared of injury so I waited to get a helmet. Then I was just scared to get on by myself. The weather was perfect this afternoon and DH asked if I wanted to go for a bike ride. Yay!
The first half hour was not pretty. I wined. "It's too fast. It's too slow. The brakes don't work! (it's a 7 speed) I don't know how to change the gear!" I went on and on. Once we reach level ground I was good. Going back home, we decided to take the hilly route. I only had to stop twice, once I missed getting it into the right gear and then, I just couldn't make it to the top so I had to walk it up the hill. I believe I'm ready to venture out on my own, trying to stay on level ground. Here is a pic.
