Ellen got a make-over!! Green handle bar wrap and cable housing.
I went riding Saturday morning with a deaf woman. I met her at REI - she was shopping for cycling stuff and we started "talking." She sent me a text and we set up a date. She does read lips, that helps. But it doesn't help a ton when she's literally FLYING through Niles Canyon and I'm trying to tell her to turn right to access Foothill Road!! Oh my gawd - I thought my lungs were going to fly up out of my throat, trying to keep up with her. I like riding fast, no doubt about it, but being forced to ride fast is a different story. LOL
When we stopped so I could give her directions (catch my breath), I said, man are you fast! She then informed me, yes, I love to ride fast and also to climb hills. I'm training to be on a women's speed cycling team. REALLY!?! Interesting. 30 miles with rolling hills, I have never completed so fast.
After I got home (and collapsed), I got ready for a day at Great America. Sara and I went to see six different Christian Rock groups perform. Well, in all honesty, I went to see six different Christian Rock groups perform and Sara was kind enough to accompany me.
Going to a concert is not *new* to me but this is, an unfinished funnel cake. If you've known me long enough, you know I can shovel large amounts of sweets into my body without a problem. But on this day, the funnel cake won.
This is the reason Sara doesn't particularly enjoy going to these concerts. People stand up and hold their hands up and sway back and forth while they close their eyes. Yes they do, it's called "worshiping".
The weather has been unfavorable here in the bay area for outside activities so my Mother's Day plans of going to San Francisco to visit Coit Tower with my family had to be postponed. It's okay, I had a great day anyway. Both girls took me to breakfast, Sara and I went to church and Keith, Sara and Sterling took me to a nice dinner. I met my Mom for a sushi lunch on Monday. She's so damn busy, I was lucky to get a date with her so close to Mother's Day. I think last year I had to wait two weeks.
I didn't get to run on Monday and there's no cardio classes at the gym so I tried something *new*. I went to a yoga class! Other than feeling like I was "warming up" for a cardio class, I did like it. A LOT! Ooooooh, were my abs sore yesterday.
I have to work tonight and I won't be able to go to my regular class at the gym so I went to a *new* class at noon. It was Boot Camp. It was a very good class with lots of weights. I am sure I will be cursing Vince tomorrow as I climb up Palomeras Road on my bike with one of the bony-ass boys.
