Sometimes The Wisest Decisions Aren’t Essy.

Part of being a competent athlete is knowing your limitations. A member of Team Chocolate Milk discusses just that in her blog post.  She makes a wise and prudent decision.

What decision have you made that were hard but prudent?

Organic Gingersnap Waffle – Organic Waffles

When I stopped at Performance Bicycle the other week to pick-up my Fuji Absolute 2.1 after it’s tune-up, I noticed they had the new organic gingersnap waffle.

Organic Gingersnap Waffle – Organic Waffles.

I had been wanting to taste the new flavor the moment I heard about it. OH BOY! I am so glad that I did. It was by far the best flavor of all the waffles. It tasted just like a gingerbread cookie. I highly recommend it!

Team Chocolate Milk Welcome

You read that right! I made the Got Chocolate Milk Team Chocolate Milk. I was so happy that I stood right up and did the happy dance right in the middle of the Five Rivers MetroParks 2nd Street Market. I am sure I got a few weird looks but I don’t care. I spent the last week anxiously awaiting the results of the voting. I was so proud of all the work my friends and family did to help me secure the spot. I was just waiting to see if it was really enough. IT WAS!!! I am so privileged to have such an amazing friends and families.

All I have to do now is complete the paperwork to finalize my spot. I am so proud of all of you! I wish I could thank all of you individually. You GUYS ROCK!
