I did get some good advice at one point---I was told it was important to "Look the part". You know wear the right dress---have the right toys---etc etc. I could never understand WHY I would spend a lot of $s on clothes to sweat in while running at 5 AM--WHO COULD SEE---WHO CARED--WHO KNEW? So I always wore my oldies but goodies---you know they are clothes you are sweating in!
As I have told you---I have picked up my exercise. Well I am still wearing the same old clothes that I have run in FOREVER--but at 5:15 when our run starts are you out there looking at us?
NO I think not---SO I am concentrating on the "Look" for biking. NOW I bought a "Used-but New to Me" bicycle------but I just can NOT wrap my head around spending thousands---YES I said thousands--for a really good bicycle. SO I CAN afford a good bike rack for my car--my little--great mileage car! So today--I went and had the local bike shop---install my new bike rack---AND drum roll---I am having clip pedals installed on my bicycle---this may mean---DEATH to me! SO if I get flattened into a grease spot while riding---I plan to LOOK the part.
Have you ever ridden a bicycle--the secret to survival is the padded pants---PADDING in the rear---PICTURE IT!! I am conflicted about this---but in a movement to remain "NOT CRAZY"--I am having a pair of riding pants made special for me----
ACROSS THE REAR--- PADDED
NOT AS LARGE AS APPEARS!
