I SPLURGED...... BIG TIME!

Yep, my friends, you have here the owner of brand new and shiny TRI bike...... Spend a lot more than what I wanted... but I see it as an investment in my health and getting back into shape. I've come to peace with the fact that the foot cannot take too much concrete pounding right now so I had to find some alternative to get back in shape! And I defnitely got the TRI bug at the St-Lambert triathlon!

I got a really good price since one of my high school friend owns a bike shop and I got a model from 2007, they only had 2 bikes left!! He will get me fitted and teach me how to ride properly for 2h next week. I will get my new baby on Wednesday or Thursday! Very excited about this, no name yet. I gotta get a feel for it before I name it =) GOOD BYE GRANNY!!!!
