Did I celebrate with cake? No.
Did I celebrate with ice cream? No.
Will I celebrate by going out to dinner and consuming adult beverages and lots of Mexican food? No adult beverages, but only because it’s a Wednesday-School-I Have To Go To Work Tomorrow Night. *wink*
How did I celebrate? With a fifteen mile bike ride that ended at the shoe store for a new pair of running shoes! Not that I do a lot of running any more – more biking and speed walking – but I wear special running shoes for all activity because I have extreme overpronation in my stride. In layman’s terms, that means my ankles roll inward way more than what is considered normal. I buy shoes with built up insteps and inner heels to keep my stride steady. Makes a world of difference in keeping the knee and hip pain at bay.
I saw this today during my ride.
There’s a new highway being constructed through Fort Worth. This will be a bridge column eventually. Today it’s just a set of forms with reinforcing steel inside them. There’s a [brave] guy braced between the two halves about 30 feet off the ground, supporting his weight with his feet, bolting the sides of the form in place while it dangles from the crane over his head. Sheesh…
Celebrate with Family and Friends, and New Shoes, not food. Keep the Faith.
