Halloween: what are we, kids? YES we are!

And being a kid sometimes is just what the doctor ordered. I got up at 6am on Halloween morning to sign in for an 8am spin class.  All week, the instructor, Angela, has been telling us to come in costume and a party was in store for us. This was after she had major oral surgery. By 7:10 we were lined up outside the door, donning our Halloween socks and masks.  At the stroke of 7:30 we began to pile…

Really Motivated or Really Crazy?

Spin Bike 2- Karen 0

Dear Bike 95, What have I ever done to you?  I have babied you, wiped you down and spoken to you in a gentle and kind voice.  I have heeded the odd sounds, whistles and grinds that you make when we are going up hill.
