Last night i bought my bike!
I am so freaking excited! i had to buy a few new parts like pedals and a crank set (because the one that came on it is "compact") , but other than that I'm set. The first race is a week and a half away. I get so freaking nervous every time i think about it. I am fairly sure I'll vomit the day of the race, i it did nearly before every soccer game and every XC/track event ( i say nearly because i think it actually only happened once or twice, but it felt like i was every time).
Since switching my rear cog from a 16 to a 15 I've been turning out much better times and avg's. That really is a confidence booster. I hope i do really well in my race next Sunday.
