light or dark?

Last week was really great.  My heart irregularity is officially gone and was 99.9% certain it was related to the medicine I was on---so glad that's gone.  With that out of the way I've been enjoying my new plan.  I kept the running light this week and skipped my "long run" as my foot is STILL bothering me!  GRRRRR!  I called the podiatrist and made an appointment I've had ENOUGH.  Until then I'll probably keep the running light and hit the swimming and biking.  The amazing workout of the week was Wednesday.  I had 20-30 miles scheduled and was looking forward to getting outside but when I got home it was raining so I got on the trainer.  About 1:30 into the ride the sun came out but I figured I would just finish my 2 hours on the trainer.  Then, Jen texted and asked if I wanted to go for a short ride with her, I figured I'd ridden 1:45 at that point but what was another few miles.  About another hour or tooling around the city and riding through a pretty park I was back home and had ridden nearly 3 hours.  It felt great!

Anyway, on to the question at hand...light or dark?  Nope, not talking about roasts of coffee or types of wine or beer but rather hair color.  I think I mentioned before that I spent MANY years as a blonde and only recently went over to the dark side (though I had done it once before but I think it was TOO dark then).  I thought I'd post some side by sides on the blog and let y'all tell me what you think.  Light or dark?  There are definitely days I really miss my blonde hair but am happy with my choice for the time being but that's not to say I won't go back to blonde.

Blonde or brunette?
Someday's I love the brown others I wish I was back to blonde.  It's kinda nice that I can go either way.
