I'm Not A Biker...I'm A Runner

Remember when we bought those bike trainers?  Remember how we're signed up for our first bike race on June 4th?  I've been riding the bike trainer 10 miles about 4 times a week and no matter what I do to try to occupy myself, I still hate it. 

{Hubs, on the other hand, does 16 to 18 miles each morning and seems to love it.....}

I've played on Facebook.
I've played Words with Friends.
I've checked my email.
I've read a book.
I've read a chapter for class.
I've watched tv.
I've listened to music.
I've looked out the window.

I still hate it.  I'm hoping that once daylight savings time hits and it's still light outside in the evenings that I'll be able to ride outside and maybe I'll enjoy it.  Maybe. 

Next week Women Run Arkansas starts back up and I'm super excited.  I'll be running with a group again on Monday and Thursday nights!  I love running in a group on designated nights - it gives me something to look forward to while getting back into shape!  And here lately, it's been super hard for me to find motivation to exercise when it's dark outside by 5:30-6pm.

Ooh I'm TOTALLY not a biker either. People always think its so weird when I tell them that, but I've barely gotten mine out since I bought it. Its so much less hassle to just go for a run!

I LOVE running groups too! They keep me motivated and accountable!

I'd fall off a bike! I haven't even tried to ride in YEARS. Like 15+ years. It would probably be hilarious to all those around to watch me try.
