Sorry 'bout that blogging hiatus y'all....
Several of the running blogs I follow have been getting into biking. I've never really put much thought into it, but lately I've decided that might be something I'm interested in. I should give it a try. I know it would be hella easier on my body than pounding the pavement all the time and great for cross training.
Then last week I had a dream about doing a triathlon. I talked to Craig about it, and he did some research for me about bikes. I made a pit-stop at the local bike shop on Tuesday to gather some information for myself and left there more confused than when I went in. I also talked to a few friends who ride and decided that I wanted to get a road bike... which I could easily do triathlons with if I decided to go that route.
Craig and I searched Craigslist for some great used bikes... and I found one I liked. I emailed the guy right away and called him shortly after he responded. Unfortunately, he had just sold it, but said he would give me a call if for some reason the guy couldn't come up with the money. I was totally bummed! I already had in my mind that this was my bike. So I said a little prayer to Baby Jesus... and an hour later the guy called me back. Apparently the person he sold it to was too tall for the bike and decided not to get it after all. So, Craig and I stopped at the bank and made our way up to Denton.
I really have no clue about bikes... but she's so pretty! Craig knows a few things, and we decided this was a pretty good deal. So after test riding it up and down the street a few times, we sprung. I named her Ruby and she's all mine!
(Please be jealous of my awesome photography skills and backdrop!)
And of course Craig and I both had to take her for a little ride.
Welcome home Ruby. I hope I can give you the wonderful life you deserve and don't kill myself in the process!
