I am Woman

Hear me roar.

I biked up the west-side hill this morning. It was only my third attempt. The first time I felt like vomitting and the only thing that stopped me was the fact that I was right outside my husband's office and someone I knew would probably see me. The second time, I crashed on a park bench at the top and rested for a good 5-10 minutes before I had the strength to move on. This time, I barely broke a sweat. OK that might be a little exaggerated but still - I didn't stop and I didn't walk. Not one step! Yippee.

I won't mention the two guys that biked by me chatting away like they were standing in their kitchen instead of biking up a hill. I could barely manage a breathy "Hi" in between gasps when they rode past.
