Been wanting to “tri” but didn’t have a bike and didn’t have the extra $ to buy one. My brother (a cyclist who has probably 25+ bikes of his own) gave me some slicks for my mountain bike – and viola! – I have a bike worthy of riding on the streets.
Tomorrow I’ll be doing my first triathlon… it’s a friendly race set up by my friend @jspitzberg with proceeds going to a great organization called http://www.girlsontherun.org. The last time I rode a bike was almost a full year ago. The last time I went swimming was January. I don’t think I’ve ever gone into an event being less prepared. No matter, we’ll all have a great time.
