Bike rides

As some of you may know from facebook, I bought a bike. Nothing too special or out of this world but one of the nicer once from Wally World. I have a feeling I could really get into this biking thing. I need something since I can't run. I've finally accepted it after seven years of trying. My foot just wont let me.

So, I've been going on bike rides with Bry each evening which has been so fun and so beautiful. Last night's sunset was absolutely breathtaking to say the least. I can't even begin to find the words to describe the vibrant colors. All I could do was stand there staring until the sky turned black.

Back to the bike thing. Last night, we only went five miles but I plan on going further and further each time. We head out toward Bear River and get a little further each time. It's something that Bry and I and even the kids can do together to bring us closer. You see, Bry and I have almost nothing in commong. Our interests lie in vastly different directions. I took him running with me once but that didn't work--he ran too fast for me.

Biking is something we both like and can both do at the same speed. He has a Cannondale he bought from my brother in law many moons ago so he rides that and I ride my new, silver Schwinn. I'm stylin!

The moral of the story is this... never give up. There is always something new to discover and fall in love with. You are never to old to keep dating your spouse and finding new things to do together. Each bike ride really does bring us closer and who doesn't need that?

That's so funny, lee and I have started biking in the evening as well--and we really love it. Are not the sunsets amazing? I miss so many because I'm inside.

AND, I'm faster the mosquitoes :-0

We can't bike where we're from due to all the thorns everywhere, but we've taken up walking every night. It has been so awesome. I completely know what you mean.
