Action Packed Weekend

This weekend was a busy one!

Saturday I woke up early and did the UNCF Walk for Education with my company. It was fun, I got to dance, eat and bond with my co-workers from across other departments.

I ended up walking the 5k instead of doing a run, because I didn’t want to be sore for my 23 mile bike ride the next day. After that I ended up running a plethora of errands and also found out I had a nail in my tire! I ended up getting a plug in it for now, I have wheel locks on my tires and there was no key for them. So I have to call the dealership who sold me the car to get the wheel keys. Wish me luck!

Sunday, I woke up bright and early to make the trek to Prairie View A&M University to do the Tour de Pink.

It was a bike ride to raise funds for Breast Cancer awareness and it was my 1st official bike tour! We had official gear to. My sis, who was the team captain, named the group the Slow Spoke Society! I didn’t join the group until later, but I will get one of these awesome biker shirts!

That was just a few of the group members. They raised over $500.00 for the cause and riding a bike uphill made me realized my Hybrid bike, might be too heavy for these kind of tours. I may need to invest in the future, in a lighter bike. those start at 300- and can cost upwards in the 10k range! Crazy. I will not be investing in a 10k bike but a few hundred bucks may have to be thrown down, if I bike ride some more. They had pit stops every 7-10 miles and plenty of treats to keep our energy up and it was fun to interact with other bikers. Some were extreme and rude (like some drivers), some were pleasant and very friendly!

I burned some serious calories, and everything I ate after that felt light! I even ate a 6oz steak and felt like I consumed nothing!  I relaxed the rest of the day and did some Grad school work and caught some TV shows. Ray Donanvin is a great show! It’s so thuggish rugguish!

This weekend came together nicely. I am walking with my Company in the annual UNCF walk for education on Saturday and that should be fun, then I am participating in a biking event with my sis in Prairie View called the Tour de pink. It’s an annual biking event that raises money for Breast Cancer research. Really exciting stuff!
