Well, the votes are in.
I have now retained my own personal bike trainer.
She is gonna kick my azz into gear to get ready for some hard core bike riding this summer.
I went up to FOCO for the weekend to hang out at Ed’s place with The Gang (all of whom have already seen Brokeback Mountain…..grrr….) and sat in the kitchen sipping coffee with a caramel in it (I got it out of one of those chocolate boxes – I ALWAYS pick the caramels, and I REALLY want the pure chocolate ones, since caramels anger me – too chewy) talking with Rhiannon about her brother. Apparently her brother races on a regular basis and currently just road some race out in Boulder. I expressed to her that I would like to utilize the bike I bought last year, and really get into biking, following the path of my mom, step dad, and apparently my dad, too! She was really excited. She bikes as well, but I think she does it alone. Her brother, I believe, lives in Carbondale, so not much interaction with him. She jumped all over the chance to help me get into biking shape for the summer. I think I fell off the wagon last year, cause I didn’t have anyone else biking with me, which = Cassie Lost Motivation. So THIS year, I will have a trainer to kick my azz into gear! I will also be able to drive up to FOCO with my bike to go on training rides with her, NOT in the city – which would be awesome!!!
1. get my azz in gear and start training on my bike
2. do small training rides all summer with Rhiannon
3. do a few local rides like the Elephant Rock ride in June
4. do the MS150 in Kansas City with my mom.
I am trying to talk Rhiannon into doing this ride as well. I want to ride this with my mom, too, while raising money for my dad! I TRIED to get Josh excited about it, but he says he doesn’t want the bother of raising money. I guess I understand, since he’d be riding his cruiser. But I think it would be fun no matter what. My stepdad agreed to set up camp for us during the ride, so we don't have to! How fun is that?
So wish me luck! i have my first meeting with my own personal tomorrow night. She says she's even going to do BODY measurements!!!!
