Sorry my posting is so sporadic. I snapped out of that crappy mood last week really quick and had a great time in Dallas. The weekend went by really fast, since I had class on Saturday (and didn't get to enjoy the awesome weather...grrrr.).
I think I forgot to mention that the hubby bought a new mountain bike a couple of weeks ago at our local Sun & Ski Sports, so we took it for a test ride on Sunday. We hit the trails along White Oak Bayou. I haven't been on my bike since the Tour de Pink a month ago, so I was afraid I was going to be too slow. But, I forgot that DH hasn't been on a bike for almost 10 years, so he didn't mind my casual 12 -13 mph pace at all. After 10 miles, I was ready for at least 5 or 6 more, but the hubby made a dash for the parking lot and said he was done. :-) Now that he has the bike, it looks like I am not going to have a running buddy after all. No 1/2 marathon for him, but that's okay because at least we can ride together every so often...I may even learn to do a few off-road trails too. But no Vic, I don't think I'll be getting a kayak anytime soon. LOL!
I will be buying my own new bike very soon, but unlike DH, it will be a road bike. So, for the bike enthusiasts out there, I need some feedback. So far, I've only done a test ride on the Trek 100 and Specialized Dolce/Dolce Elite WSD models, plus I've read up on both of those brands. However, going to Sun & Ski made me realize that there are other brands out there! They carry Bianchi, Marin and Scott. If anyone has any feedback on deciding between one brand over the other, I'd love to hear it. Based on my conversations with the salespeople so far, I can go with either a 51cm or 54 cm frame, but the 54 cm would need to be adjusted so that I don't have to reach quite as far. I can tell that I am going to have fun trying to make up my mind!

Oh, and by the way, I did ace my presentation on Saturday! Woohoo!
