A bike for Vinny

Friday was a fun day - I took my BFF Vinny (aka Heather) up to Woodstock to pick up a bike she found on Craigslist. Turns out - it was a good fit! Heather, er..Vinny, was excited!

Later that day, we headed out to AMS for a ride except it started to rain as soon as we climbed on the bike. We decided to play in the sprinkles...which became downpour. By the end, each of my socks weighed 3lbs each I swear! All in all, it was a good ride. 15.53 miles. A leisurely stroll but Vinny did great considering it was her first time on a road bike (for further than up the street and back), she was wearing tennis shoes on SPD pedals and the weather was crap. We picked up new pedals for her yesterday so given a week or two, she'll be kickin' my rear up and down hills at panola!

Nothing new on the riding front...I've spent a considerable amount of time at the gym over the last week - trying to focus on legs and general fat loss. We'll see how that goes...

Epic Bikes is starting a really awesome contest tomorrow - the grand prize is a kick-a$$ trainer...perhaps my desire to win will put me back on the bike for a while.


  1. I totally love my new nickname. I will kindly ask everyone to call me that from henceforth.

    Ohmigolly I had so much fun riding with you!! I really think I'll get better at riding with time - there is light at the end of this painfully long tunnel!

    Girl, you've kicked Gold's rear end this week...I'm proud of you.

  2. Hey...what can I say...being obsessive makes going to the gym easy once you get in a routine! :)

    You are forever Vinny now. I'm glad you had fun riding - you're going to be awesome in a very short time. We'll ride on the weekends when you can and you'll be giving me a run for my money soon.
