Nostalgic

  Considering the whole country is under a heat wave right now, it probably isn’t a shock that its hotter than Hades here.  Therefore, I have to sacrifice my sleep and start getting up early to work out.  Yesterday, I woke up at 6 to go to the gym and felt like I had a ton of bricks strapped to my body.  I have a deep respect for anyone who gets up early every day for the gym.  Now that I am out of “school mode”, it’s hard!!

Today Mike and I accidentally slept in til 9 and wanted to make it out on a morning ride.

We take three-mile laps through a local neighborhood. I made a goal of five laps today and felt pretty good.  One note though, make sure you get “fitted” to your bike.  I haven’t done it yet and I can tell I am learning some bad habits and the position on my seat is definitely not right.  I could have ridden longer, but because of that problem I had to stop.  Not to mention the sweltering temperatures.

 

O.K. so I am majorly nostalgic and you can blame it on my family. 🙂  I am always trying to bring back stories and memories from the past.  Mike says our Disney World nostalgia is a little much in our family, but I am perfectly content with it.  We HAVE to go to Disney at least once a year, even if we have to go to Disneyland.  I love it.

Well, I swindled Mike into being nostalgic too.  Warped Tour came to Las Cruces and one of our favorite bands, New Found Glory, was going to be in it.  Mike used to go back in the olden days with his friends to the Tour and I used to go to NFG concerts with my friends back in Vegas when they would be at the House of Blues.  The memories are so awesome.

Seeing that we are in our thirties now, we felt a little sheepish for going, since the median age for the Tour is about fifteen.

It was so fun!  I was made fun of for going, but it was really cool to hear them again and the best part was being in the crowd and experiencing the chaos of concerts.  I’m not gonna lie I got a little scared when the crowd surfing started, but thankfully my tall husband took care of that.  Mike’s brother Jared was there too and was brave to surf the crowds. 

We got to meet the band and had them sign a poster for our loft too!  It seriously was a lot of fun…even if I was too old! 🙂

Question:  Have you ever done something you thought you were too old to do?  What do you think are things thirty somethings should NOT be doing?
