They’re Mine!!!! ALL MINE!!!!!

My shoes came!!!

I got a call from Incycle that over at the Chino location they had my shoes in white, size 41! You see…when I ordered them…I accidentally ordered a 42 (partly because the shoe I was trying on to get an idea of sizing was a mountain bike shoe….). Well, the 42 came and it was just too big. But they were able to get me a 41! Victory! Anyway, yesterday I went to go pick them up, tried them on and they were perfect. As soon as I got home I threw those puppies on and went for a quick, hard ride and I felt like Lance Armstrong 🙂 I probably was going the same speed I usually do, but I passed a few people cruising around on their mountain bikes. There is actually this steep hill at the end of Brand and this guy on his mountain bike couldn’t even go straight up it, he was weaving back and forth and I just got up out of the saddle and smoked him! He was probably pissed that a girl smoked him…hahaha…sucker! If only you knew how slow I was then you would realize how out of shape you are!

The shoes are everything I hoped for, they are light, breezy, cool looking and comfortable. I really can’t wait to start using them more. With that, I am planning to ride my bike in tomorrow. There is supposed to be some rain overnight, so if I wake up and there is no rain…I am riding in! Then I have the PTC weekly brick, so I will go do that after work and then George will drive me back home since it is on his way home and it will be too dark for me to ride back home by myself.

If you are curious about my new kicks, you can read a whole review on them HERE.

So, a lot of PTC folks did the Ironman Oceanside 70.3 on Saturday, I have been seeing the pictures…reading the race reports…and I have to say…now I want to do one. You won’t see me signing up quite yet…I still want to get an olympic distance under my belt. But I think I am ready to take myself to that next level and get to run around wearing Ironman crap….70.3…

Oceanside seems to be a good one, but it is sort of at a bad place in the year because you have to train during the winter. Vineman might be a good one, its a little later…although I do not know much about the course. Anyway, now I just need to convince George to do one too…because he is my training buddy and I would sort of need him on board!
