Weekend Wrap Up- Rides, Weddings and Birthdays

Posted: Category: Life as I Know It 2 Comments

Friday was Rosanna’s birthday.  It doesn’t feel like it though as the MS bike tour is next weekend so we take it in spurts.  I gave her her birthday present last week, card Friday and then dinner with friends Friday night.  I really do feel bad that her birthday is so close to her event.  Trust me babe, once you hit 30 you are really going to WANT to miss them :-)  Happy Birthday Sweets!

It also happens to be our dog Annabelle’s birthday.  She’s 7 now and as fat as can be.  Damn porker.

Saturday was a TPR team ride up to Snoqualmis Falls.  Never fails, really, that I feel great on the way out, hit the wall coming out of Carnation and then feel 150% at Samammish.  Weird.  Martin asked what do I do during races if I only feel good by hour 3.  Well,  I out sprint everyone on the cool down.  Ride map is here (with the exception of the upper loop)- View Interactive Map on MapMyRide.com

My cousin got married Saturday afternoon.  She is more like my little sister than my cousin and although we haven’t seen a whole lot of each other these past few years we are still pretty close.  It was an awesome wedding with friends I haven’t seen in a long time showing up.  I had to leave after dinner for a few reasons, one I was really tired from the days ride and two, well…  I was getting a bit choked up and didn’t want to be a blubbering idiot.

Sunday was around the North end of the lake with a larger group than Saturday.  Good folks, great pace (with a few hard efforts that Jeff and RC both whooped me in) and it was great to see Dustin out even with the brace on his fingers.

 

Now.  I have been told by a few people that I need to confess something.  Last weekend I ate 4 Dick’s Cheeseburgers and 3 bags of fries.  is that bad?

See… I’m not a complete health nut (typed as I eat granola and drink a glass of grapefruit juice)

  • the picture made me chuckle, as you say ‘I’m not a complete health nut’ and you can see the grease already leaking through that bag. haha.

  • Ah, turning 28 was a bit hard this year. I’m getting used to putting a celebration on standby. Helping people living with MS is so much more important to me.

    I love my cruiser bike and can’t wait to take it to the market and pedal home with local produce and bunches of flowers. muwah!
