Yesterday was the day! I have been thinking about getting a bike since I moved to Atlanta over three years ago and I think it just took one or two mentions from the bikers in my life to put me over the edge and do it. So, say hello to my new baby! Unfortunately, it had to be special ordered since I needed the smallest size (shocker) and I won't get to enjoy until May since I have a crazy week this week and then go to the West Coast for 5 days for work.
So when Brett (one of the aforementioned bikers) and I were talking to the guy at the bike store, he kept saying the bike had Deore brakes or shocks or something (I kind of glazed over during the technical portion of his spiel, knowing B was listening and understanding) and I totally thought he meant Dior. I was like, hmmm, that's a little weird, but so very biker chic! Then when I saw the spec sheet on the bike, I noticed the correct spelling and chuckled to myself. A very Tera moment.
In other sporty news, I scored a spot in the Nike women's marathon in San Francisco October 19. I am not even going to pretend that I'm not totally intimidated by this. I mean, at a 5k yesterday, I was feeling like death so I can't imagine that times 8. Yet. My sister is doing it, too so at least that will be motivating and super fun at the actual race.
Happy Sunday! It's a gorgeous day here.
