So it has been a really long time since I hopped on the
spinner and did some prep for the Ride for Heart. Trust me, I have the sore a$$ to prove
it. It looks like I’m adding a new pair
of bike shorts and a seat to my list of things to buy at the Bike Show this
weekend. Now after the debacle that was
last week, I wasn’t feeling really great about where I was (and my mood has
been severely affected as a result).
Only thing you can do in a situation like that is change it. Well that and get some help from one of the

for improvement. If I can keep somewhere
