Spindle Top Spin turned Birthday

Standard

My friends and I were going to be riding 29 miles in the Spindletop Spin Bike Ride. Due to……you guessed it RAIN, it was cancelled. We were all pretty upset about this, but we were also okay with it. I had already registered and lost $30.00 out of it, so I was very determined to pick up my packet and t-shirt from the site that morning.

I had even bought a new helmet for the ride that I was super excited to wear! My friend Mary and I picked up my shirt and they offered one to her and our other friend Chelsey for free too! We were all super excited because the shirts were SUPER CUTE!

After we picked up our packet, we raced back home to finish a few things and then picked up Chelsey! It was her birthday this week so we were headed out to celebrate with her!

Our plan was to go paddle boarding, but due to the…..you guessed right again, RAIN….we had to change our plans.

We decided instead to go to a Paleo restaurant and then go rock climbing…which was a new adventure for us all!

We ate at this yummy place called “Corner Table” in Houston. If you haven’t tried it, you need too. It has paleo options to eat. I got the salmon, which came on top of some ravioli and let’s just say that I CLEANED my plate! It was so delicious.

After lunch, we found this cute little bakery that sold macaroons, so had to get some of these…

These little babies were not cheap, but they were oh so good! Check out the picture above, you notice the sky! Guess what it did on this day…..yep, RAIN!

After we ate our yummy treats and got some to go, we made our annual trip to Lululemon. I had 2 gift cards to here that I was so excited to use. The stuff in this store is not cheap at all, but all of there workout gear is worth the price! I walked out with 2 sports bars which I LOVE and a new pair of speed shorts, which are phenomenal for crossfit and running!

These two girls are amazing and I do not know what I would do without them!

Our next adventure was ROCK CLIMBING! We had never tried this before and wanted to take it on and see how we did!

There was quite a bit of trial and error! My old camp days were coming back to my mind from doing high ropes courses, but all in all we had a lot of laughs, sweating, climbs and great times. I would recommend this gym to try out! Try going on any day but Saturday though, because they tend to have a lot of birthday parties. It was quite crowded when we went.

Event though we couldn’t do the Spindle Top Spin bike ride, we still ended up having a great day with great friends celebrating Chelsey’s birthday!

Have any of your bike rides or races been rained out lately?

We are hoping to get in a couple more if it doesn’t RAIN!
