I received many awesome gifts this year. Brian surprised me with a Pandora bracelet, lots of clothes, VS items, and Alex and Ani bracelets.

One bracelet I got was from Alex and Ani and it is “It’s Not A Sprint, But A Marathon” is one that my Mom bought me. This will be my 2015 saying that I will be keeping with me. I believe that this weight loss journey takes time and will not finish quickly like a sprint. 2015 will be my year. No more excuses and no more “I can’t.” 2015 is going down.

Alex and Ani and Tour De Shore

image (10)

I am obsessed with Alex and Ani and their up lifting and inspirational bracelets. I really love the new one I bought which says, “Young & Strong” because it reminds me of the achievements I’ve accomplished since my weight loss. I love the bracelets and you can find anything on the site. They have for every event and every inspirational milestone. Also, I am not a girly girl and these bracelets are so simply. I love them.

 

So, if you know me I am obsessed with spinning classes at my local gym. It is my favorite type of class at the gym. One thing I really want to do is get my bike back in order and actual ride around the area. Anyway..I was listening to WMMR’s Preston and Steve podcast  and knew about an event in my area that their produce Casey Foster participated in. The event is called Irish Pub Tour De Shore and I have made up my mind that I will do this for summer 2015.

1429.

The Irish Pub Tour De Shore is bike riding of course, but it is hardcore bike riding. One starts in Philadelphia at The Irish Pub on Walnut Street and ride their bike all the way to Atlantic City’s Irish Pub. This is a 65 mile ride. I want to participate this in the worst way.

I have NEVER road 65 miles, but this event makes me so determined to try. The event is going to be a year away and I can train for this. My only problem is the $200 to do the actual event, but if I save my money then I can raise enough for my donation.The main problem will most likely be the training for such a ride and other things..Here is my list of concerns.

1.) Raising money

2.) Having a functioning bike

3.) Training for this event

4.) Have the gear to pull this off.

Again, I have a whole year for this event and I think I can do this. I REALLY want to do this. I think I can do this.
