…I got a new bike. A Novara Carema Pro road bike, and it’s pretty!
Nikki and I went to the REI Garage Sale at the Tukwila REI this morning – what a nuthouse. I got a new purse for $10, which is cool since the purse I had was falling apart, but other than that it was mostly junk. Nikki found a bike that fits her in REI proper, which is cool since it’s hard to find them for women that are 4’10”. Also, the bike she’s been training on (my $80 Wal-Mart “dorm bike”) weighs a ton. I drooled more over the bike I fell in love with, but more or less decided I couldn’t justify it, even though I’d need a new one before the STP as well. Talked it over with Dad online… and went back to REI and got my bike 🙂 I only got to take it for a test spin in the parking lot – we’ve certainly had “Weather by Sybil” today. Rain, I think we heard one crash of thunder, sun, rain, a break, more rain… I guess just typical Seattle. So I’ve got this brand new bike and it’s too rainy to take it for a ride! It’s gorgeous and lightweight and feels amazing to ride!
Since we got up really early for the “garage sale”, I’m exhausted at 9:30pm, so it’s time for bed!
