Wow what a crazy last few days (see previous posts for updates). The bike situation has been fixed, and I was able to order the LAST Felt S22 size 50 from Inside Out Sports, who were as nice as nice can be. It should be here Friday. Score. So crisis averted.
I managed to get in the five hour trainer ride without injury or incident, followed by a short 45-minutes run, again without injury. So that was a weight off my mind. Maybe next week I can actually get on the road. Woo-hoo!
I spent the night in Wisconsin with my friends from internship (one is from Kentucky and now lives in New Jersey, and the other lives in Wisconsin, both pictured above, with me in the middle). It was good to see the two of them again, and I am always struck by how hard it is to live so far from those so close. We see each other only a few times a year, and it is never long enough to get all of it in. So much to say, but never enough time. And this weekend was even harder because I missed an all-day shopping excursion due to training yesterday. They understood though, and were even kind enough to indulge me by asking how it all went. So nice.
Anyhoo, I had great expectations for this post, but am feeling a bit worn and need to get my clothes ready for tomorrow (now that I have a grown-up job, I can't wear jeans anymore...well...at least not until I put a few more weeks into this).
