Last night my dad and I decided to take our bikes for a spin. It has been so long since I have attempted to ride a bike, and the last time I tried I couldn't keep my balance and kept falling off. I am happy to report that last night after listening to my dad instruct me on riding a bike, I successfully managed to stay on and make a couple trips around the parking lot!!! I forgot how much fun riding a bike can be, I have taken some spinning classes at the gym and always enjoyed it, and always imagined myself participating in a cycling event,but of course I was not to sure exactly how I would stay on the bike. Then, when I started training for marathons, my interest peaked again mainly because the area where I run in is also very popular with cyclists. Everytime my feet would hit the pavement and a cyclist would come by I would think ... Hmm that seems kind of fun. So here we go step 1 is in the works :re-learn how to ride a bike, Step 2: take my bike to a near by park and see how far I can go on a easy trail. I know I have a long way to go but you got to start somewhere.
