Meet my new shiny TEAL bike. Actually she is my "old" bike but sporting a new look... painted TEAL, the color for ovarian cancer, for this upcoming season and my fundraising campaign. I went out for a 20 mile ride today and it felt great to be back in the saddle. I have been training on my really old bike, which is 8 pounds heavier than this one. What a difference on the hills. A big shout out to Carl Hart Bicycles and Darren for helping to make this happen. He organized the paint job with a company in California and has been my "go to" guy on the project. I couldn't be happier with the results. Did a 40 mile ride yesterday too. My cycling is feeling great but my butt is sore. But that's all part of the training. Less than 2 weeks before the first triathlon. It is an open water swim on the south shore of Long Island in the beginning of June. What was I thinking? Water temps are going to be freezing! Oh well, that's what wetsuits are for.
