I had the best luck in the world yesterday... the best! When I was asking around for where to buy some tubes (just in case) I was mentioned this little bike store right around the corner from my work... I have ran many many miles past this store, even drove by it more, and had no idea it was there.. but alas... it is and I will be back.. Judi's boo Dominic works there too.. which made me totally pumped and comfortable to know I have a local bike shop I can be a regular at that isn't over 45 mins away. The store.. Bikes and More.. right on Glenmore off Montana, and BAM is right there :)
However, after leaving, knowing I have my tubes in hand, I knew I am one day closer to this half ordeal...
Tomorrow.. forecast shamcast... looks kinda gloom, but I am hoping for a Finishing race.. that is all.. a FINISH. I took a look at the bike route... ha, fear in my bones... have I rode enough hills? take a look.
Yeah... Look at those climbs and drops... on my god.. is that a little bundle of fun right there in the middle and there at the last portion... oh Joy!
However, I did get a spiffy, make me look fast singlet... I am a dork and actually wore it around the house for the night.. just to get the feel for it..
I am headed down with a teammate of mine, Jon... Jon is anticipating being finished in about 4.5-5 hours... I warned him to bring a couple of books to read while he is finished bc I won't be that fast... just aim to finish! :)
Then to top it all off, I have Kristen K. Daily's bachlorette party and friend shower.. :) Yeah. I won't be worth a pile of poo, but it will be fun for her.. I hope.
Good luck to all those racing at Tri For Joe Sunday :) You will be cold, but you will be fast :)
Cheers friends... Cheers with little ring on big hills:)
