OMG

So, this weekend, yours truly is attempting to bike 11 miles. WHAT???!! Yes, ladies 11 miles. And no I have not trained, I have not even broken a sweat in months. What the heck am I thinking you might ask? I don't know. LOL

A group of girls at work are getting together to go so I am borrowing my sisters bike and giving it a whirl. I have not been on a bike since I was 11. Good Lord. What if I break her bike? Oh, God. What am I thinking? I hope I don't bite it. That would be embarrassing, of course I've done worse to myself in public.

They have tried to explain it to me but I don't understand why bikes have gears. The last bike I rode had had brakes where you pedaled backwards. What if I forget how to break? I think I'm crazy. One of the girls is a former fatty who got thin/fit the old fashioned way and looks amazing. She has threatened me with push ups if I whine any longer. Did I mention that I hate her?

Actually is it horrible that I like her more since finding out she used to be a fatty?
