I want to say Hello! This is my 1st blog and I just wanted to pop in and drop a few lines. Wayne and I will have some more stuff up soon.
Wayne and I got fitted for our new bikes and they are great! Barry and everyone as Sun and Ski have been so wonderful. It’s so important to get fitted for your bike. You want to make sure that it’s not too big or too small for you. TJ helped us out when we where there on Tuesday but any of the guys in the bike area can help you with getting the right bike. Don’t get discourage when you walk in there. Just ask for help and let them know you are new and what price range you want to stay in. Sun and Ski has some nice bikes in there but some of them are the advanced cyclist.
So on to the good stuff. Wayne and I are going to ride today; we will be on the picnic loop at Memorial park. We will be tooling around with the bikes, messing with the gears and getting comfy in the saddle. So if you see us, say hello. We can use any tips or advise anyone might have.
I’m a native Houstonian and I attended Milby High School. I was a high school cheerleader but since then I have fallen out of an active life style. I consider myself a couch potato with a liking for the outdoors. (Usually watching it on TV) I’ve tried a variety of different activities from biking, hiking, kayak/coning, to just the casual stroll at the park. I also love traveling, anything from a trip to Paris, France or just for a weekend stay in Paris, Texas.
I had the opportunity to participate in the Great Raise Houston with my BFF Wayne. All through it was one of the most rewarding experiences I’ve have ever had, Wayne and I understand the need to be in better health. I am very close to my family and I actively participate in my nephew’s lives. I also assist in the care of my Aunt who has diabetes which is one reason I am concerned about my health. Diabetes runs in my family and I know that I can prolong this if I take care of myself with exercise and better eating habits.
I currently work for Ross Insurance Agency in Midtown, which I love! One of my perks is that it is just a hop, skip and a jump away from Memorial Park and Discovery Green. I may not be working out but I like being outside when it’s not to hot in Houston. Our next goal is the MS-150 Houston to Austin in April! Wayne and I are partnering with the Sun & Ski Sports and participating with their cycling team to train and conquer the MS-150.
