My Monday ended on a more positive note then it started, and my Tuesday was splendid. I was able to pinpoint some of the reasons for my Monday funk, which was good. Hopefully I can work towards resolving them soon. The nice weather with all the sunshine has held, which is always good for the spirit.
However, it is quite possible that I have lost my mind. You see, for the past 20 years there has been a MS 150 Bike Tour from Houston to Austin. Approximately 180 miles or so (depending on which route you take) on a bike. Pumping pedals. Two days worth of riding. Back in 1986 or 1987, I thought it would be a cool thing to sign up for. I’ve always wanted to do it.
However, wanting to do something does not equate to doing it until you actually get up and make it happen.
So I did just that. I’m now officially registered for the MS 150 ride to Austin. I’m also reading up on https://legalsteroidshere.com/diet-tips/ to understand how to better take care of my body. I can no longer say, “I’ve always wanted to do that…” Now I have to say, “I am in training for the ride.”
The training is a big part of why I am doing it. I know I need to exercise more, but without a goal or accountability it is too easy to slack off. I can’t slack off on this. I have to be ready to ride through the Texas Hill Country. A long, long hilly ride. I know if I train, I *can* do it. (I am also reassured that the race is so well run that they have vans to scoop you up if you just can’t make it, but we won’t focus on those, ok?)
There is just one hiccup right now in my plan. I don’t own a bike. Guess I need to do something about that, huh?
So, who wants to ride with me? Come on … you know you want to do it!
