On Fitness and Stuff...

The bicycle training has begun in earnest now. I would like to get to the point that I am not embarrassed to accept invitations to ride with people. I have just got to get my lungs breathing and my legs pedaling a bit harder and faster. I have decided that the bike is very therapeutic. It reminds me of when I was young and on a swim team; the bicycle provides me with an outlet for my energy and frustrations. It’s great to be able to go and throw all of your troubles quite literally into the wind, or perhaps work them into the pedals.

Tomorrow I have spinning in the morning and photo in the evening. Spinning will be its normal torturous event, but it’s good for me, and eventually it won’t hurt as badly. The photo class may turn out to be very embarrassing, especially if everyone says that they hate the photos I will show. I wholeheartedly admit that I haven’t taken the assignment as seriously as I could have, but it is summer and I am not going to stress out about something I took for fun.

The folks that went to JavaOne last week were back in the office today. They had some interesting stuff to say. Maybe I will write a bit about that in the near future.

Hey Joe Dear,

I am literally sitting around in California, thought I'd read the blog. I hope you're enjoying your break and that the canyon dinner we planned for Dad went well.

I love you!
