Funny Tidbits :)
As some on you know, I’ve been training for my half marathon coming up in May. It has definitely been my biggest physical challenge. I wake up at 5:45am on most mornings to train before work. I don’t have much time after work to train, and I am also a bit tired at the end of the day.
I volunteer with an organization called YAY, they basically pair up a pair of youths. I am paired with a really sweet 7-year old and we meet once a week to hang out. We draw, we read, we go to the park and eat ice cream. (Hey, I do all these things on my own, anyway :P).
We talk about what time we go to sleep and wake up. Apparently I go to sleep before her (I try to get into bed by 9:30pm). When she found out I woke up at 5:45 am, she asked me, “AM, are there people in the world who wake up earlier than you?”
As I mentioned before, I grew up with parents who were quite frugal. When I finally learned how to ride my bike without training wheels and my knees kept hitting the handle bars, my parents decided it was time for me to get a “big girl” bike.
Of course, being my parents, they didn’t want to spend money on too many in between bikes. Especially for three girls! So they bought me a bike that I could ride for a really long time. I kept falling off of it at first, and only one of my feet could only touch the ground when I leaned on one side.
But it worked, because I can still ride that bike today. And I am 25 years old.
