My mind LOVES to wonder. Sometimes I swear there are little elves in there running around building more cells just to make me use them and mess up my head even more than it is normally. My wheels hardly ever stop turning... should I do this, should I do that, why can't I lose weight, what if I eat this way and not that, what about this food, what will dropping 5 pounds do for my climbing, why are races too expensive, will they give me a discount since I don't drink beer (and hubby doesn't either so I can't get it and give it to him), when is my new biking gear coming, should I take my bike in for a tune-up, should I take a couple bikes in for a couple tune-ups, hubby will balk at the price of a tune-up, how many days should I take off work to ride/work in the garden, can I balance it all, I wanna be the most fit 50-year old I possibly can be, that means riding like a crazy woman, I wanna race, I don't wanna race, yes I do. When will this stop!?!??!? Will drinking cure this all? Here's yet another crazy thought... I'm bitching about prices of races and go to check out the River town Race Series prices and find them affordable (and they have category in EVERY race for a 50 year old woman!) but ALSO find even more races I want to do! What the hell is up with that? I enjoy doing the adventure tris (paddling instead of swimming), hubby approves of them (because I use the boat!) and I find one only 45 minutes from home! It's in another part of Weiser State Forest - the Roaring Creek tract - that is northeast of me near Mount Carmel. Just a leisurely ride in the car on a couple back roads and I'm there. Of course I'm doing it! Click on SACH Roaring Creek Tri for info. It's Oct 24. And I'd like to do the Chili Challenge on Oct 16 too. Very fun. Oh, and while I'm at it, why not the Humdinger on March 7? It's only 7 miles of mountain running. Ha! There go those crazy little guys in my head futzing things up! Oh the torture.
