Dirt princess

Drumroll please . . . My Gary Fisher Tassajara Mtn. bike has finally arrived! I'm sure my coworkers have been tired of me dancing around waiting for it. Its in pieces though and was shipped to me in two boxes. The hard part is waiting to have it built. I can't wait to get it dirty on the trails. Queen of the trails I am not but princess can?! Hmmm, maybe. I saw Kimiko the other day and asked if I could go riding with her so we'll see how that goes. I'm excited about adventure riding!

The Rota Blue Tri is coming up and I haven't biked at all! I've just been swimming and running mostly. I think I could bike it but I heard Rota's got some killer hills. You know I'm just doing this race to say that I completed a tri! Nevermind that I will probably come in last place. We'll see. I just need to invest in a really good helmet because after hearing tales about flying over handle bars . . . I'm a bit nervous.
