When I bought my bike back in June, I intended to use it for recreational/cross-training purposes. I had no idea that a few short weeks later, I would discover a new-found urge to see what this triathlon business was all about. I certainly never thought I would complete a sprint duathlon, a "give-it-a-tri" triathlon and a sprint triathlon [coming up this weekend!] this summer.
As it turns out, I like it even more than I thought I would! (I know, a lot of you are thinking: Told ya so!)
Now that I find myself planning a 70.3 event or two for next year and potentially something bigger down the road (again, many of you are thinking: Told ya so!) I definitely need to upgrade my ride.
I can definitely hustle on my hybrid, but I'm excited to see what I can do on a bike that's made to go fast and far.
So, I am officially in the market for a tri bike and overwhelmed (but excited!) by the decisions that lay ahead. Let's go shopping!
Okay, I may have already been shopping for a few accessories...
Time to have some fun!
