woo-hoo!!!!!

I just finished an awesome 11 mile bike ride on my new beautiful bike. It was a very hilly course around my house. I had sooooo much fun! It is so fun exploring new territories, that is hard to do running sometimes. You don't want to go to far off course when you have another six miles to get home, you know? But on a bike, who cares about a few more miles!! I was only cold on the downhills. I was psyched to be out riding on New Year's Eve in Connecticut!! It is a balmy 39' but no wind. I was actually hot on the uphills and there were many! I had two pairs of pants and three shirts and gloves and a headband under my helmet.

When I got home I was so psyched I ran three miles! I am an ironwoman in the makking, HEAR ME ROAR!!!

Happy New Year!

ps photos and a name for my new best friend the bike to follow!
