Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Nope. Weights, heavy bag, wind sprints, steak, chicken, fish, and chocolate cake.
The sixth grade build ain't for me....

Yeah, I've been on a break myself the last couple of months. I lost my mojo somewhere along the way. I am starting to look forward to this season. We'll see if it lasts once the dieting and training starts. I bought the car to give me something else to obsess over. That went well

I was pissed off because I thought Caselli was taken out by a booby trap set by the spectators. Come to find out, there was an animal involved. Not a good thing, but less bad, in my opinion.

Got out for 26 miles today. First time in awhile that I felt up to it, had to force myself to ride the trainer the past few days.

Aw, tell your husband he can bite me. What a crock of crap! You start in the classroom this fall, right? And in the meantime you've taken on learning this new thing that seems as if it could be physically as well as mentally taxing, at least during the getting the hang of things part, *and* you already have customers lined up so this isn't some pie in the sky dream you've decided to pursue but it sounds like that could be both good and bad pressure. And on top of all that you're having to deal with this sort of BS from him? Sister, if you ask me, you're seriously overemployed right now.

Forums about children? Forums for children? Forums about the modifications necessary to create an ultrarace of children?
