I have the bug. The triathlon bug.
little no time for training lately, all I can think about is registering for another triathlon. I have been putting in 13 hour days at work and dealing with stressful client situations. Throw in a virus and a sick dog and voila!
But this time I won’t be entering the fat tire division.
I have been bike shopping and because I am a noob, I was trying to keep costs down. Well, for those of you who are bike connoisseurs, you know how expensive a new bike can be. I was in sticker shock at first, but finally resigned myself to just put up and shut up.
The family can live on ramen noodles for the next month, right?
Then, I found Penelope.
The above picture is the after shot. I did not take a before shot because she was in very bad shape. A local recycled bicycle shop had just got her in and she had been sitting up for a long time. After working their magic on her, she is good as new!
I can’t wait to have the time to hit the roads and give her a good breaking in!
