Fathers Day and 43

Sunday, June 16, 2013

What a lovely day to turn 43! I have had a pretty perfect day. :) :) :)

So, what does one do, when accustomed to going on a birthday run every year, and you have an injured foot? Well, you get on a bike of course! I had a glorious 22-miler this morning. The weather was perfect.

2 hours before I have to go to problem! I'll be home in plenty of time! :D

Home! 22 miles on an apple. I'm STARVING!!!

I'm having a great day of eating even though it's my birthday and we're having key lime pie tonight. I've been saving calories for that today. Besides, I burned 1400 calories on my ride!!!

Incidentally, my dad is in town for the weekend and he's been watching the US Open. Phil Mickelson has the same birthday as me, same age and everything. My dad is astounded! *eyeroll*

Tomorrow morning, I'm doing another 5am ride with my friend who just beat cancer. She was so happy the last time we went. We'll have a nice ride tomorrow. :)
