Mother's Day Haul
Nothing says Mother's Day like a 40 mile ride out in the country! We didn't have a 5pm newscast on Mother's Day so I decided to go for a ride. I went to the Oklahoma Bicycle Society's Wednesday night route that starts at Route 66 park and rides out into the Yukon countryside.
|Oklahoma! Where the wind comes sweeping down the plains...and the waving wheat...|
I stopped a few times to admire century farms, goats, and these cows. Maybe this chatterbox spent too much time alone, but I actually talked to the cows in my goofy voice reserved only for dogs and babies. They seemed mildly amused.
|My new friends! I wanted a cow for a pet when I was in 5th grade. Doesn't quite work in the suburbs of Chicago.|
Team Jo & Em Returns!
Joleen and I are back in the saddle, so to speak, for another charity. This time the American Diabetes Association's local chapter of Tour de Cure asked Joleen and me to be the celebrity riders for the event. We are trying to recruit people for our team. If you know how to ride and own a bike...you can join! The ride will take place in Mustang on Saturday, June 24th. You can choose from 4 different distances. If you'd like to join or team or donate click HERE. In an effort to get new members, we've been holding a few group rides. We tried our first one two Sundays ago. Unfortunately, there were thunderstorms so we had to call it due to lightning. Thank you to all who came out!
First Flat...Wah Wah
It was a success!
We did a 30 mile ride and then ran 2 miles. This is what triathletes call a BRICK work out...when you ride and then run immediately after. I'm pretty sure it's called "BRICKS" because your legs feel like a big ol' pile of bricks.
Okay...that's enough catching up for now! Happy Memorial Day and thank you to all those who have served and continue to serve today. It's because of you that we can live freely today in the great United States of America!
I'll try and stay on top of my game with blogging. Talk to you soon!
