My Husband Rocks! ~ Family

This weeks is a bit late in coming but not for a lack of having a reason. In fact, I've had the reason in mind since the beginning of last week. J.R. has come to expect these posts and asks me about it when I don't post in a timely manner. :) So here's your late one.

All last week J.R. kept trying to guess why he would rock this week. His first guess was when he took me to Wendy's to get a fish sandwich. I'm extremely picky about the fish I eat and Wendy's has the best fish sandwich. Unfortunately, they are only offered during this time of the year. So I was quite pleased when I was able to get one again. But no this is not the reason my husband rocks this week.

J.R.'s second guess came when he made my sandwich for lunch for me not once but twice. While an amazing and much appreciated gesture, this is not why he rocks this week.

No, the reason he rocks this week was when I found a conversation between he and my dad on my facebook page. I guess J.R. was on my facebook (not an unusual thing) and my dad started talking to him. What I read between the two of them made me so happy. It is so nice to know that J.R. has become such an important part of not just my life but my entire family's life. He truly is a son to my parents. It just means so much to me to know this and to see evidence of it. And this is why my husband rocks this week. :)

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&…
