Spring is here

My body must have known that Spring is here...because I woke up sneezing this morning. Not just a couple sneezes either-I am talking the 30-in-a-row kind of sneezes. You know, you try to ignore it and tell yourself "this is the last one". But no....brushing your teeth you are sneezing (this can get messy). All through your morning shower you are sneezing. Blow-drying your hair you are sneezing. Putting on your make-up you are sneezing (this makes for funny sneezing faces, not that a sneezing face isn't already kinda' funny). Folks - spring is officially here.

This coming weekend we are headed to Vegas for our good friend Q & D's wedding. I am excited - not only for these two to start thier new married life together, but because we just happen to be going to Vegas first week of March Madness...yeah that's right! Get our gamble on.

When you under-estimate...

Currently listening to: The's laundry-day Sunday

I entered Leon and I in the Muddy Buddy contest a couple weeks back. This has now turn into a full-on competition between friends. What that means is... I need to get my out-of-shape ass in gear!

So, got our mountain bikes, installed the accessories, and yesterday - we were ready for our first ride.

We live in an area where there are lots of hiking and mountain-biking trails. Ideal for such training you may say....

But it is also a bit "hilly"....and when you haven't so much as run a mile in the past year...getting up two very steep hills is brutal. I got halfway down the dirt trail and had to turn back. My legs were burning.

Better work my way up in baby steps...
