We Only Look Like Grandparents to Other People

I think my husband is absolutely gorgeous and he likes me too. A lot. We've known each other since ninth grade so it doesn't seem possible that we will turn 53 this year. Yes, we're getting older but to each other I think we still see our younger selves. Others are clearly blind to our… Continue reading We Only Look Like Grandparents to Other People

Swim, Bike, Run? I like the Bike Best…so far.

Great ride this morning! It was sunny and 73 degrees. I rode a little over ten miles today and I am loving this cycling thing! I am about eight weeks in to this training thing.

Because I am so tense and cannot get… Continue reading How much equipment does a swimmer need?

Running “Head Over Heels” at all times

Today's run took me around the University of Florida campus. This is a beautiful place to run on an early Saturday morning. It's quiet and there are very few of those young, energetic, non-wrinkled people walking around. If I did the same run during the week I would have to jog over to Psychology for… Continue reading Running “Head Over Heels” at all times

Sittin’ Pretty in My New Bike Shorts

I took this photo at the end of my ride. Do you know why I am smiling? Because I have a heavily padded, new pair of bike shorts on therefore I am feeling pretty good in the saddle! I am also wearing a happy face because I did not have to face the dreaded hill… Continue reading Sittin’ Pretty in My New Bike Shorts
