“I bought the ‘Garmin Forerunner 310XT with heart rate monitor today’. I’ve had enough of being free without numbers. I am driven by numbers, and I cannot hide from them any longer. I shall be plotting spreadsheets of my activity, of Gwendolyn’s activity, etcetera. We shall do some kind of race or long distance bicycle ride (like Pittsburgh to D.C.), raising money for a good cause. And the Garmin shall be a wonderful addendum to our training program. 2013 shall be a year of happiness. Of fitness. Of health. Not a year of being mad about my body.”
Writing these words, last month, to my European best friend, I realised that NicoleAndGwendolyn.com shall, indeed, use our passion to do something excellent for the world! We shall train hard, recording details of such training, blog reporting the specifics of our physically intense activities, all whilst raising money for a fabulous cause whilst promoting another good cause… intense challenge and maintenance of finely tuned and functioning bodies.
Gwendolyn already looks phenomenal. Check out her gorgeous waist!!!
And I shall steadfastly earn back this gorgeous yoga body that existed in October of 2011. Oh la la.
And by doing so, we shall unite people and animals. La la la! :D
The schedule exists such that we shall bicycle ride from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania to Washington, D.C., following the ‘Great Allegheny Passage’ through the Allegheny Region of the Appalachia Mountains, connecting to the ‘Chesapeake and Ohio Canal Towpath Trail’, emptying into D.C.
