What's In a Bike?

 One light weight Cannondale bike frame

 Two of the thinnest tires I have ever seen in my life

 18 gears to keep me going up those tough inclines along the water

 One headlamp which prevents me from getting run over by cars backing out

of their drive at 430AM!! (who else gets up that early??)

 Two sets of brakes; refer to #4.

 One water bottle/holder; Hydration is a MUST!!

 One biking pocket;  keeps my iphone rain-free

 Infinite measure of love from my husband, who put it together


Don't Give Up!!

Find something else if what you're doing doesn't work.

I started out walking this morning, but found I am still having random pain in my ankle and knee.

Is this the sign of old age???

I turned around and headed back to the house after only doing a half mile.

As I approached the house, I kept thinking I should just drive up to the gym in Annapolis and go lift.

But I was determined to get some cardio in.....


I took two Ibuprofen and hopped on the bike and did my route.

I can't put into words how it made me feel knowing I wasn't going to quit this morning, and push on through.


Doesn't even begin to describe it.

All I have to say
