If you have been following my facebook or twitter the past few days, you know I went on a big bike ride this past weekend to celebrate turning 37 years old.
I’ve always heard that people go “through” something each year they creep toward the big one (40 years old).
Well, it seems I’m no exception.
I love to cycle, so I thought what better to challenge myself as I near “old” age (**wink, wink**) than to try something I’ve never done before.
Ride 100 miles–known as a Century in the biking world.
I found a few people brave enough to help me. Bob, Christina, and my sweet hubby, Charlie.
This was at mile 60. We stopped and refueled and rested. Here we are ready to brave the wicked wind that picked up for our last 40 miles
Here's me at the end. My friend, Michele, got me a balloon and hid it in my garage. Man, I was TIRED! Glad it was over.
Charlie took me out for a fun dinner at Red Robin.
I had a monster piece of cake . . . burned a few thousand calories on the bike ride, so I indulged. LOL
On Sunday, we relaxed. I went to see the movie New Moon with some friends why Charlie recovered, cuddled up with our sweet dog, Maddux.

I went to see New Moon for the second time. . . was just as good.
So, I’d mark this down as pretty much the BEST birthday I’ve ever had.
How ’bout you? What’s the best birthday present, activity, or whatever you’ve had?
