Walking, biking and pushups. Not all at the same time, of course. Then there was the Peach Pedal. That’s Mr. Pea and me just at mile 17, taking a break. Yes, I ride in a skirt. The world does not need to see my fanny in bike shorts.

We – the entire family – continue training for the annual DFW Tour de Cure. Saturday’s Peach Pedal ride was eye opening. I’ve lost some endurance over the past few months, since I haven’t been riding as much. Ouch! The 37 miles was a bit long, and I was struggling in the heat. SO. We’ll be biking a lot for the next two weeks.
I still need sponsors, so here’s another shameless plug: Please support this year’s Tour de Cure by sponsoring me, or any other rider. All donations are appreciated – can you spare some change?

Green Grass! It has rained for more than forty eight hours straight (AMAZING!) so we should see green for a few days before it gets hot again. Back to school is bearing down on us, so it’s time to start thinking about things like new socks, undershirts, pencils, shoes and notebooks.
