Scared, Unprepared, Laid Back or Clueless?
Pondering answers to those questions, I sat back and laughed at myself. Please note that I drank two glasses of wine last night and did not stop to think if it would cause unicycle fallout days from now. My diet is far from that of a health nut … working in second grade I may as well work part-time in a bakery. Students bring in home-baked goods regularly, not to mention free donuts in the Resource room on Fridays. Why, just today I bought a jumbo package of mini-pumpkin muffins from Sam’s Club. Now I am feeling unicycle guilt for writing out this truth. Was I supposed to transform into a health nut because I am crazy enough to unicycle a half marathon?
On my behalf, I do insist on eight hours sleep and eat a solid breakfast, but as far as wardrobe? I know I will be wearing my unicycle diaper and shoes/socks on race day. Don't worry, there will be more clothes on my body, but I am not sure what ... I should create a UnicycleRose.com shirt so I can advertise what a minimally-prepared-light-hearted-mom-goof-athlete-blogger looks like.
I might be in for a surprise on Sunday, as my can slips and slides in the saddle, soaked in sweat about mile nine. All this while I'm gasping for air and dripping in my own juices ... smiling all the way ... so, who cares if I am scared, unprepared, laid back or clueless? I choose to live like I'm alive!
