I know it has been a long time since I last posted to this blog.  Things have been so busy between work, training and family commitments…busy but good.   That being said, I did have to take a little time off because I had family visiting and we took them on vacation.   However, I am happy to report that my bike finally came in and I have now started to ride.   The timing was great in a way – with the warmer spring weather – it is definitely nice to be outside.   I actually did my first ride down in Delaware while we were on vacation.  I did 14 miles which was not bad for my first time out.    Once I  got my bike – I decided to go one step further and get the clip pedals put on that are accompanied by the special shoes (they look like cleats).   My very first day – at the bike shop – I fell in the parking lot (for those of you who do not know, your feet are clipped to the pedal and you have to release them in order to step down).    It takes a little getting used to, but I am starting to like them.   I was able to take a longer ride today and rode for 35 miles on fairly hilly terrain.  We will have to see how my legs are doing tomorrow!
