Farewell, G-Force. You were a wonderful bike.
Not really. You were terribly uncomfortable, and the cause of way too many low speed tipovers.
Hello, Specialized Secteur Elite Apex. I’m not sure of the proper name for her yet. Something sassy and snazzy. Perhaps Antonia, in honor of my quest for St. Anthony’s. Yes. Antonia. The name “Antonia” is from Italian origin and means “priceless.” Bea-u-tiful.
Hello, to the Expert and his new bike. Specialized Allez Compact Apex. I don’t know if he’s named his bike yet. Probably not. It’s probably not very expert-like to name a bike. I will ask him. He’s on his mountain bike right now at Tribble Mill Park. Also, an unnamed bike, I’m sure.
For the first time in my life, I am ready for warm weather.
I have a triathlon coach who is almost lined up to start with plans for January 31 (shall I even dare breathe that it could be Ironman G? And if anyone could kick my butt into shape for St. Anthony’s I would put money on him.)
Life is good. Time is precious. Why not spend it on something crazy like triathlon?
