No sleep for me this weekend either.
After doing the back-to-back shows of Salt Lake Gaming Con and Wizard World Boise, this weekend, my son is dragging me (most possibly literally) out for a 12 mile bike race/ride. At least he didn’t sign us up for the 100 miles — that may have awarded him with a smack upside the head. **grin**
I’m quite comfortable doing 7-9 miles, so I hope that 12 will be fine as long as I don’t get ahead of myself and try to push myself through the heat. I’m hoping that the day doesn’t get hot too fast.
Adrian can’t tell me how we return: “Maybe they will have a shuttle for the weak and the elderly. Which category do you fall into?” he asks with a huge grin. I return by sticking my tongue out at him. Yes, we have a real mature household here.
He’s been wanting to get me into cycle racing since before he got me a shiny new road bike to replace my mountain bike. Doesn’t he know that I’m dangerous with speed? The slowness of the mountain bike was to handicap my inner daredevil, not that I could be stopped from jumping off curbs and making mad dashes through mud puddles and such. Yeah, there are just some things a 40+ year old woman should not be doing.
Me with my bike.
Hmmm, I wonder if that’s a severely limiting belief.
Then I recall the gaggle of junior high girls that weren’t paying attention when they were skating and we all tangled. I ended up on the floor, looking up into several scared sets of young eyes, and thinking that I had to get up off the floor before they started thinking that they had killed the old lady.
Yeah, really hoping this bike race doesn’t end up like that.
At any rate, I figure between the exertion and the heat, I am going to be one tuckered little cyclist by the time I get home. Pretty sure nothing will get done after that.
Maybe Sunday I can get back on schedule.
Until Adrian announces that he wants to go work out at the gym and drags me there for 3 hours (no joke).
Now do you see why I like to go dimension hopping? Time to slip through the page to another world again.
Have a great weekend. Send me good thoughts to get through the day, would you? Thanks!
