Ok, so I admit I do. And I sing! I don't sing well. Actually, when I was a child, my mother used to sing, and she was dreadful. She was nails on a chalkboard bad. My younger brother and I determined that she is most likely tone deaf. It has taken 3 decades to come to terms with this, but I am pretty sure I suffer from this same terrible ailment. Well, I guess I don't suffer...just everyone around me! Tee hee hee
I actually think quite a bit on the bike. I guess that makes sense, since I ride such distances. I spend a lot of time out there on the road and trail. Riding is different than running when it comes to what I can and can't think about while I am doing it. While I ride, I can pretty much think about what ever I want. I can work on a problem I am having, and face it, or I can use my time on the bike to ignore the issue and ride out the aggression. I almost always feel better after a ride, especially a good ride. Running is different. I have a lot less control over my thoughts while I run. I spend a good deal of time thinking about how much it sucks to run. I think a lot about race. It is fairly easy to obsess over it while I run. lol The one thing I can not do while I run, is feel sorry for myself. Isn't that weird? If I am am having myself a pity party, going on a run is like taking a mini vacation! Who knows what the heck I think about, but it feels nice for awhile.
I have never needed music to ride. I guess that is probably for the best, since it is a lot more safe to ride without ear buds. Occasionally, I will ride with one in, when I ride on the trail. I find it exceptionally rude when people (cyclists/runners/walkers/bladers-gag) can't hear you because they have their music on so loud you can't even communicate with them on the trail, (making them a hazard!) Then you pass them and they act like you're the dick head that didn't give them the heads up. As if.

Meh... The boys are with their dad tonight. I miss them and I'm bored. Can anyone tell?
