The Shower

I am one who enjoys my alone time. I find being around people for extended amounts of time exhausting. That became a problem for me as I entered the wonderful world of college and dorm life. It seemed the only place I was able to truly get away many times was in the shower. This became my daily alone time. My time to just be alone and think. Needless to say, I would take long showers just in order to get away from everyone and everything.

While I no longer take extended showers on a daily basis, I still take a long shower from time to time to simply relax and think. My current shower has two small steps on either end, this makes sitting in the shower quite a bit more relaxing. That is, if you can fit your behind on one of these small steps. For the longest time I wasn't. Oh sure, I would try. However, I would find myself too uncomfortable as I attempted to keep myself from sliding off the step and give up resigning myself to simply standing.

Until now. No, now I am happy to say that I have whittled that quite large behind into an only slightly large behind. I am now able to sit comfortably on that step and relax a bit before facing life outside those shower doors. That is a wonderful feeling, especially to know I've done that myself. Yes with support, but really on my own. Now to get that behind down to a medium size behind. :)

I'd love to hear what you have to say! Otherwise, I feel like I'm talking to a wall, much like I do with my students. :)

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&…
