"and, if I might say, my Daffodil arrangement really does bring the smack down......"
dude....too, too funny
ok, more seriously, I consider myself an athlete, though I'm not competing against anyone but perhaps myself....kind of a late blooming one, really getting more serious in my early 40's.
weight training: originally for the mental health aspect (got me away from working with the public at my old job for at least my lunch hour), secondly for the results I've seen on my body
skiing which I've loved for years (first went at 17 when this really cute guy moved to Tulsa from Conn. and was pinning away to ski....and well I was pinning for him....nothing happened but I did learn to ski :-)
most recently, mountain biking which is doing great things for me cardio wise (which I'd otherwise avoid). my goal there is be able to keep up w/ one of my straight buds who rides my butt into the ground......first time I rode, it was 102 f°, I was as wet from sweat as though you'd thrown a bucket of water over me but I had this huge grin. those were the conditions the first three times I rode, the fourth was from the top of Winter Park....much better temp. but 10k ft will still kick your ass.
does this make me a realjock?
