So today has been awesome.
We slept till 9:30AM! I did not wake up a single time prior to that! So happy. And the first thing we did was a little yoga! I received the fruits of my recent Amazon spending bender yesterday afternoon and it included a second yoga mat and two dvds. It literally freaks me out how inflexible Kevin is. My theory is that’s why he gets all these weird hamstring injuries and whatnot (that is – unless he’s faking to get out of working out!!!!).
We started out with beginner routine. A good place to start, righ? And it’s only 20 minutes. We liked it!! I was kind of afraid I was going to be bored out of my mind, but it had a lot of variety and a quick pace. Aren’t you proud of Kevin James for trying it? I think he liked it too. I’ll having him touching his toes in no time! I can’t imagine not being able to do that. It must be so weird.
Guess what? We put in an offer on a house today! Crazy quick, I know! We just saw it yesterday after work. It was the first day on the market, and they’ve already had another offer too! Not sure if we’re going to get it yet, but we decided to spend some time cruising around our possible new neighborhood. And what more stylish way to do it than on a B Cycle?
B Cycle is Denver’s public bicycle sharing program. It’s just one of those things we’ve been meaning to try out since last fall but never got around to it!
Denver B-cycle is a city-wide public bike sharing system for short trips. Denver B-cycle members can pick up a bike at any B-station and return it to that same station or any other B-station when they’re done. Membership to the system can be purchased online or at any kiosk. Members can use their credit card or B-card to unlock a bike in seconds. Returning a bike is even easier. Just roll it into a dock and walk away. The onboard B-cycle trip computer allows members that registered online to track all the miles they ride, the calories they burn, and the carbon emissions they avoid.
I also want to do the Tour de B Cycle. It’s a challenge to ride a loop around all 42 stations in one day! You get a t-shirt and your name on the website. Lol. I’m a runner. There’s not much I wouldn’t do for a t-shirt! And for a Dri-Fit? You might be able to get me to eat a disgusting banana!
We rode around for almost 2 hours — about 10-15 miles. My phone said 10. The B Cycle online thing said 15. Probably somewhere in between. We checked out the neighborhood schools, rode around in a nearby park and even stopped at the local grocery store for some drinks. I really feel like I have a better feel for the area now, and I looooooove it!
I loved using the B Cycles, and now I really want a bike of my own! I’ve been checking Craigslist, but I’m not really sure what to look for in a bike? Cruisers are super popular in Denver so they’re expensive on Craigslist!! I suppose if I scoured yard sales, I might be able to find a steal. Something tells me I won’t be that dedicated…
All that biking got us hungry!
We spotted the Pajama Baking Company when we were doing some neighborhood research in that part of town, but it was closed that day. We stopped by today for some ice cream.
My husband chose the boring regular flavors —> Double Chocolate Chocolate Chip + Cookies & Cream. They had Feta and Peanut Butter Curry! And he didn’t even try anything. Just went straight for regular old flavors.
I attacked the Salted Caramel + Chai Latte. I noticed later that you could add sprinkles. Darn! That totally would’ve been worth 25 cents.
Do you have a bike? Not yet! And I haven’t had one in a REALLY long time. But I can totally see myself riding one around in our new hood! I had so much fun today. Now I remember why we had so much fun biking around in Wabasha when we were kids!!
