Secret Mission Revealed

Today's workout:  5 miles on the TM in 53:01.

On Saturday I mentioned a secret mission that I had to take care of the day before. I've been so excited about this (driving Brad crazy like a kid at Christmas)so it was hard to keep quiet. But now I can finally share... We got new mountain bikes!!
That's mine in the front, isn't she a beauty? I have been wanting one ever since we started running trails. I knew a lot of people rode street bikes here, but I had no idea that it was such a popular place to mountain bike.  We run at Bent Creek a lot and it is always overflowing with bikers. I thought it would be something really fun for B and I to do together.

He surprised me on Monday and took me to check them out at Liberty Bikes. Sam, the manager, helped us choose bikes and even let us test drive them. He was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. I went back in on Friday to tell him we wanted the bikes and then we got to pick them up on Saturday (they check the bikes over before selling them). Then we hit the trails.

It was so much fun!!

I can't wait to go again and we were thinking about going tonight... But our butts HURT! Padded Lycra pants anyone? Sign me up!
