My chi is off. I need a clementine.

It is no secret that I am a freak about clementines.  I need to eat a clementine before I work out or I truly do believe something will happen. I have not had a clementine in over a week.  I cannot find any non-skanky, unbruised or unbeaten clementines- anywhere.  I have looked, believe me.

The 12 Spinning Days of Christmas

This is the requested follow up to the original post, Cycle Porn.  Now to my fellow spinners who wake with me to enroll in class at 3:28 AM on Wednesdays, 5:58 AM on Sundays and all the days and times in between, I wish you and our warrior instructors a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday.  Enjoy.
