Hike and Bike… and a Hot Mess

This Labor Day held the annual Mayor’s Hike, Bike, and Paddle, a family-friendly active event in Louisville. You can come out and ride 15 miles through downtown on your bike, hike 3-4 miles through Waterfront Park, or paddle 2.6 miles on the Ohio River. This was the first time I’ve participated with my buds and we had a good time.

However, the night before
I did laundry and forgot to dry my workout clothes.
Which meant air drying my bike shorts
on the way to the event…
Hot Mess
Exhibit A:
Photobucket
And wearing them over
the rest of my clothes…

Tamara and Scott:
And a short video
taken after the race.
Tamara was standing still.
And upright.
And then she wasn’t.
Hot Mess
Exhibit C:

I hate hearing my voice.

Hope you guys had an awesome Labor Day Weekend!
