BINGO!

Today is yet another glorious fall day.

I started it off with a four mile run, which included a graceful stumble on a major road in town. I totally bit it. I now have two scraped up bruised knees to show for that! But I kept running, since I am hardcore. And also, it was a long way home.

Then Chrissy and I did this event that the ISU Cycling Club was putting on. It was like bike bingo. You had a bingo card and they had all these locations all over campus where they had numbers written down and you had to sprint around to all of them to try and get bingo.

It was a blast. And I got a crapload of practice at clipping in and out quickly. And as luck would have it, I actually was one of the first people in. I was the fourth person to finish in the geared bike category and the first girl to finish (okay, there were only four of us). Of course, that had less to do with my biking skillz and more to do with the luck of the bingo card draw. They didn't have male/female categories, so I got no bling, but I did get free socks in the prize raffle, w00t!

It's been a very long time since I've bloodied up my knees from running. I think my most recent case of bloody knees was from roller hockey. Regardless that couldn't have helped your biking for bingo. You're certainly good at pushing thru life's mishaps.

D@mn. I hate bloody knees.

Bloody knees are awesome! It shows that you are a woman who runs trail runs in skirts, falls and gets back up to run anyway, and spends less time looking at herself and more time out doing things in the world. You rock!

Except that I am sufficiently vain that I totally check myself out when I run by reflective glass :-)
