I feel like I have been searching forever. The time has finally come! Let me start from the beginning. Last year I was looking into getting a bike for some cross training purposes. So I could get exercise not only from running. Then my friend Kelly said if you get a bike you should train for a tri. She is very persuasive. She is the same girl that convinced me to run 26.2 miles. That is a whole other story in its own.
So last night I got stuck at work late and I was keeping my fingers crossed that the gentleman selling the bike would still be available. 7:45 rolled around, I called….
Success it was still available to look at! So I race home (meaning I drove the speed limit, while grinding my teeth). Once I got home David was ready and waiting in his truck for me. Such a good boyfriend. I think he was just as excited as I was, but not about the bike. He just got a GPS and was excited to use it. We plugged in the address and we were off.
We pulled up and sure enough, I knew this was the bike I had been searching for. It was a little more than I wanted to spend, but I think in the end it will be a good investment, I mean; I am investing in my heath. What could be a better investment?
Plus he threw in the helmet.
Which you can’t ride without! Now I am on the search for shoes… Anyone know a place to get road bike shoes from?
Time to get back to work!
Over and Out!
