    I used to be a bigtime coffee drinker but recently i’ve switched over to tea. I like how many flavors there are and since I’ve weened myself off coffee I find I don’t depend on the caffeine – which is definitely a good thing!

      I have one small coffee Monday-Friday at work but that’s it. I try and drink a lot of tea and water the rest of the time.

    I love iced tea. I’d drink it forever if sleep weren’t such an important lifestyle factor… Coffee is great, too- but I only like it with creamer, so I’ve been trying to keep it to a minimum.

      I’m the same way-I can’t drink black coffee, it has to have sweetener in it!

    Owie on that bruise!

    I drink both tea and coffee, but coffee is my true love! I drink it unsweetened, but with milk.

    I am traditionally a hardcore coffee drinker, and plenty nerdy about it; however lately I’ve switched over to unsweetened teas and tisanes, and I like them just fine–always have.

    Your bruise is spectacular!

    And you know, when you say “I still had a pretty good run and ended up going the long way,” I think to myself “that really is exciting because it means that she’s dedicated to this, and that’s unusual.”

      Yeah–once I’m out there I’m pretty committed to finishing…

    I am a coffee gal! I drink 2 cups every morning. But I make my coffee REALLY week. Usually I brew 4 cups and only use 1 scoop of coffee! haha! Keith says really I am just drinking coffee flavored water! πŸ™‚

      When you discover how to alleviate butt pain from biking, let me know! That one is hard!

    I’m both! I love a good pot of coffee in the morning – I drink a cup with J on the liani after my workout then a cup on my ride then a cup in the office. My fav is is Illy Dark Roast Whole Bean.

    In the afternoon I switch to tea. Earl Gray, Chocolate Carmel Chai and of course Green!

    Of course I drink a lot of water during course of a day as well just to stay hydrated.

      I’ve never tried Chocolate Carmel Chai…that sounds delightful!
