Day 5

A photo of you

Opps almost forgot about today's post as Thursdays are my "long" day at work, which simply means I have to work 5 hours instead of 3. It also means I don't have a lot of extra time to mess around on the computer during the day. :) Anyway on to today's picture. 

I wasn't too sure about what picture to choose for this one. The picture I did choose used to be my facebook picture for the longest time. It's another self-done picture this time with my phone instead of a real camera because at that time we had no real camera, at least not a working one. I love this picture for a number of different reasons. 

First the expression on my face, it shows a bit of personality which tends to be lacking in many pictures of me. I'm the quiet and shy type and even though I am blessed to photograph very well (thank God for being photogenic!) my shyness doesn't lend itself for much of my personality to show through. (Which in itself is a reflection of my personality but I digress.) 

I love the look on my face and oddly enough that was a complete fluke. I was facing a window and a bird caught my eye as it flew by which is the reason for my sideways glance. I was watching the bird. :) I also love that hair cut. I'm currently growing my hair out, but I really do love that look. It will return one day. :) Finally, the color of my eyes is amazing in this picture. My eyes aren't usually that blue. There were other pictures that day and the color of my eyes ranges from blue to gray to even green. So strange.

Weekend in San Diego

I was looking forward to this past weekend for a number of reasons and a number of weeks. First, it marked the beginning of my Spring Break. I cannot tell you how much of a needed break this is. To start the break off right, J.R. and I packed up our bikes (and some clothes) and headed down to San Diego for the weekend.

Saturday J.R. arranged for us to ride with a former coworker of his. We knew he is quite a bit slower than we are, but we simply wanted a nice, relaxing ride. What we did not know was that this would be the worst.ride.ever.
I want to preface things by saying I know things could have been far worse. I, also, know that if this was my worst ride, I should consider myself lucky. However, all that does not change how horribly catastrophic this ride turned out.
Problem #1 should have become very readily apparent the minute we started. J.R.’s former coworker chose the route. This man is not a very experienced rider, because of this he shys away from the road. That’s fine, however…

Lazy Days

Saturday J.R. and I were lazy. It was nice. We eventually crawled out of bed and decided it wasn't too late for a ride. The ride we originally planned for the day goes through some less than safe roads. I was ok with riding these roads early in the morning with no traffic. I wasn't about to attempt them later in the day.

So we made our way to the trusty trail. We did a nice easy 23 mile out and back ride. It was a beautiful day. We were a bit concerned about the wind. However, it turned out to not effect us as much as we thought.

After, we did a little shopping. A few weeks ago I read Too Cute Runner's review of the Reebok 7" shorts and I simply had to buy some myself to try out.

My legs are huge. Granted they are no where near the size there were before. (I lost over 10 inches in one thigh alone!) However, they are still large. They are very muscular and I'm thankful for it. I've come to accept my tree trunks. :)

Because of my larger legs, running shorts don&…
