One of the things I really hate about Midwest winters is not being able to ride my bike outdoors.
There are plenty of options around this like spin classes, trainers and other stationary cycling activities. Somehow these options don't measure up to a bike ride on a beautiful day outdoors, but I need to stop whining now.
My family and healthy physical activities are my biggest interests. I regularly compete in races and triathlons. I LOVE sports, especially the St. Louis Cardinal Baseball (Go Redbirds!) and Mizzou Football (Mizzou-rah!). Also enjoy current events and politics. I also try to keep up with new movies and music.
