March 31, 2015 - 2015 Cycling Challenge, March Totals!

March was a great month to start a cycling challenge.  Blake and I had a great time, and I managed to get my body moving again.  That is always a good thing.

Total Miles for March...

Hiking, 1.35 miles
Cycling,  61.896 miles
Earnings - $15.75, Woot!

Total awesome exercise...63.246 miles.  Woot!  Yay me.  :)

Observations...

I have an amazing, supportive family.

The older I get, the harder it is to exercise.  This body takes a little longer to recover.
Having Rheumatoid Arthritis does not mean that life can't be fun.  You just have to push it, and remember to rest.

I think I have photographed every inch of our 25 mile green belt over the last 3 years, but it never gets old.  Time to realize that I don't have to stop 10 times a mile to take a picture.  New sub-challenge...5 photos a ride instead of 500. I am such a shutterbug queen. 

Schwinn rules...Huffy drools.  lol :)

Thank you Garrett for challenging me.  I love you son.  Thank you Blake for riding with me, you make exercising fun.  I love you too honey.

Finally, 1,000 miles by October 31?  Probably not.  But I am going to have fun trying to get close to that number.  

Shoot for the moon, and if you miss, at least you are floating amongst the stars.  :)

April is going to rock!

Until next time...enjoy life, and be kind to one another.


Peace.

March 29, 2015 - 2015 Cycling Challenge, Ride 7

Blake and I enjoyed our final ride of Spring Break today.  I did have a flat tire 2 miles into the ride, but daddy and Garrett came to our rescue.  They were able to repair my tire and off we went.

It was a beautiful Spring day today too.  The sky was clear and temperature was a perfect 67°F.  We enjoyed some tacos for lunch, and got in just over 13 miles.  It was awesome!

Back to school tomorrow for Blake, and back to weekend only rides for us.


Not the best way to start a bike ride.  
 Waiting for our tire repair crew.
 Daddy and Garrett to the rescue!



 Daddy testing my ride to be sure it was safe and ready to go.

 And we were off!

 A delicious taco break.

 Yummy churros by the river.




Until next time...enjoy life, and be kind to one another.


Peace.

March 27, 2015 - Say Good-Bye to Your Scooter Dad!

Today daddy taught Blake how to drive his scooter.  Daddy may never see that scooter again...lol

Even I gave it a try.  I have to admit, it is so much fun to drive.  Maybe it is time for mama to get a scooter too.  :)

 Piece of cake.

 That face!  LOL :)

 Thumbs-up!
 Woohoo!  Blake doing the scooter dance.
 Hop on dad.




Until next time...enjoy life, and be kind to one another.



Peace.

March 27, 2015 - 2015 Cycling Challenge, Ride 6

The weather was so amazing today!
I wanted to take a long ride, but we also wanted to include Dozer in our adventure today.  He gets so upset when we leave to go riding without him.  The problem is that Dozer is way too old to ride with us like he used to.  Blake and I decided a short ride to the park it would be.  Since daddy was off today, Blake could shoot some hoops with him as well.

Dozer lasted about 5 blocks before he started to slow down, poor old puppers.  Our adventure was more of a walk than ride, but we had a fun time anyway.  :)

Total ride today was 2.20 very slow going miles.  Every little ride counts.
Weather permitting, we will get one more long ride in before then weekend is over.

Dozer is ready to ride.

Blake, shooting some hoops with daddy.

Dozer LOVES playing fetch with a tennis ball, but after that bike ride he said no thank you!



 Just let me rest...





Walking, not riding, on the way home.


Awww Dozer, time to get a bike trailer for you buddy.  <3

Until next time...enjoy life, and be kind to one another.



Peace.
