I Bought a Bike and Padded Bike Shorts! I Have High Self Esteem!

by sara on June 26, 2010

We already went back to Torchy’s for lunch today.  Some might call it an addiction but I prefer to think we just happened to be in the area coincidentally.  15 miles from our house.  My parents met up with us and my dad was obviously REALLY excited about it:

I get the "don't mess with me when I'm hungry" look from him.

In non-food related news, I got a bike!  A real bike!  One with gears and junk!  It’s purdy:

Wait til you see my padded bike shorts! (hotness)

Jason and I signed up for Shammies ‘n Koozies a few weekends ago only to find out the day before we were going to leave that it was canceled due to flooding.  We had major sad pouty face.  Shammies ‘n Koozies is a 45 or 65 mile bike ride through the hill country ending at the Guadalupe River where we then float down the river for a couple hours.  It has been rescheduled for August 7th so we plan on being able to ride the 65 mile option by then.  Since we missed the ride a few weeks ago, we decided to do the Susan B Komen 5k instead.  We signed up the morning of the race so we didn’t get a chip timer but we started a few minutes behind the chipped timers and still finished with the first pack of runners.  The perk to finishing first?  The free swag afterward.  There were about 3 times more sponsors than the Rock ‘n Roll Half Marathon.  And they were not shy about giving things away.  Here is just a random sampling of what I took home:

3.1 miles for 3.1 shirts? Deal

What you don’t see pictured here are the 20 coupons we got for free Chik-Fil-A sandwiches and La Madelaine desserts.  Dunkin Donuts was giving away free iced coffee, Alcatel gave away bags, Frito Lay gave away Sun Chips, Paciugo was serving up gelato and even Mickey D’s was handing out apple slices.  It’s nice to see so much corporate support for boobies.

In other news, the puppies are still cute:

Jason and my Dad finally got Korean haircuts together:

I had a little car trouble:

and the Italian Giggle was captured on camera:

The Dallas heat is killing me and my productivity level in the afternoon.  This morning Jason rode 33 miles on a group bike ride and I ran the dogs 5 miles just before it broke into the 90’s.  7 iced drinks later and I’m still thirsty.  More garbl’s coming this weekend!  I’d like to give you  my thoughts on Cane Rosso pizza and the Taco Joint so stay tuned.

Your dad and Jason are so cool for getting Korean haircuts! So multi-cultural. You are the healthiest person I know, which I guess doesn’t say much because everyone I know drinks and smokes. Can I live vicariously through your running/biking?
