A Century

by Lisa Rosen on November 2, 2010

My son rocks. He’s sixteen (he’ll be seventeen in two weeks, but for now he’s sixteen).

Saturday he did his first century ride. For those of you who don’t know what that means: he rode his bicycle a hundred miles.

Let me just reiterate: he’s sixteen. A hundred miles is a long way to drive, never mind ride a bike. I couldn’t be more proud of him.

If I ever worry about his attention span, please remind that he can get on a bicycle and focus on pedaling forward for six solid hours. His attention span is just fine, I think.

What did you do to move your body today?

Way to go Toby! I darted from my office to my bosses grabbing peanut M&M’s as I ran past my coworkers desk. All part of the tapering plan (at least thats what I’m telling myself) 🙂

Which race are you doing Eileen? I know you’ve said, but my memory is like a sieve . . .
(and yay for tapering!)

City of Oaks Marathon, this Sunday. It will be my first and the anxiety is starting to kick in already. So many ‘what if’s’ rolling around in my head, I’m not sure which way is up this week.

Anxiety is normal, but feel totally fine the second you start running. Smile and thank all the volunteers and have a great day!
