We interrupt this program

July 3, 2011 at 9:20 am (Day to Day, Motorcycle News, Wasting Study Time Posts, Weather) (, , , , , , , , )

Due to weather and my inability to not help people when they need it. It’s annoying to be sure. But hey, karma right? And what did I really lose anyway? A so-so buzz, computer access, TV watching, laundry folding and the brain numbing joy of sitting on my couch or on my back patio staring at that big white wall.

More heavy storms rolled in again on the first, and that 100 degree weather the news people were predicting finally made it over here yesterday. It was nap-inducingly hot. But I stayed cool with my motorcycle riding. Finally. The BF got a new bike and he’s making me go out so I can get “practice” and be “more comfortable”. I have to say, it’s fun, but stressful. I’m pretty nervous with traffic and I need to work on my stop-start skills. I need to be faster off the line so I don’t get squashed.

And is it just me, or does there seem to be a news story everyday of some poor slob getting killed on his/her motorcycle by a truck?? I wear a helmet but I’m not sure I will fair any better just because my brain isn’t physically all over the street. The word is you don’t think about the bad stuff. Pay attention and don’t do anything stupid. It’s seriously like learning how to drive all over. I need to re-train myself on how to “see” the road. I think I am taking today off.

Plus, two of my schoolmates took their big test and passed! So happy for them. A little bit jealous. A little bit scared. A little bit guilty and anxious. We all want to pass. So I really should be studying. How often do I type those exact words in one of these rambles? I should get paid for it and I would be rich.

Warrior Dash Helmet Cam

July 21, 2009 at 9:01 am (Video, Warrior Dash) (, , , , , , , , , , )

If this actually works…my sissy, her husband and myself are at the 2:00 mark. Right near the guy with the blood on the horns of his Warrior Helmet. It’s a lovely video of our backs walking toward the start! Then Mike pretty much zooms away from us!

No.

So just GO HERE!

I don’t have enough skills yet to make this work!

I WAS the Warrior!!

July 18, 2009 at 4:39 pm (Day to Day, Pictures, Warrior Dash) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

For a beautiful, brilliant, running, jumping, climbing, crawling, soggy, dirty, swampy, muddy, fire-singing moment in time, I was one with all the elements!

WE were one with all the elements. Myself, my sister and her husband got down and dirty and we are so over the WARRIOR DASH!!

We started nervous–didn’t know what to expect–but once we got into the Wave Gate, we were READY!

Just a fun day of goofing around on a 4 mile obstacle course with 2000 of our closest friends!

We didn’t win but we weren’t last and more importantly, we didn’t get HURT!

We got pictures. We got video. We WILL be back next year!

I will post what we have right now and please check back for the video!

Warriors Unite! We kicked extreme ass! See you in 2010!

This was our starting Wave Gate

Just a little bit...

Rinsing off enough to get in the car
