That was something I heard all the time when I was a kid. For those who didn't know me as a kid I didn't turn down too many dares. You didn't have to go to the dreaded double or triple dog dares, I would take you up on it pretty quick. I must say my pride got me hurt a lot as a child, although I was a kid and what else where you going to do, right?
One thing my friends and I did do all the time was ride bikes. It didn't matter if it was sunny or raining, we where always on our bikes. Sometimes it was to just ride to a friends house to play Atari, or a all day drive to my grandparents house in Cincinnati. So I am sure your asking what does my lack of turning down a dare and riding bikes have to do with each other?
I have decided to accept a dare, the dare to lose weight on Livestrong.com . I was reading on the website last night and once I saw the word dare, it was on like donkey kong. LOL... sorry I have been dying to use that phrase. I have bought a bike and I am committed to shed the flab. I will get into the bike in a future blog.
Anyway, so lets review, I can't turn down a dare, my childhood was so boring all I did was ride bikes, and I have accepted a dare to lose weight at age 35. No problem I am glad we had this chat.
