Gettin' Jiggy...

Do you see that bike? Can you read that name? My poor bike is being violated!

My bike found a boyfriend! I went to pick up my bike (she was getting all beautified for her race in Canada). She did NOT want to leave Bike Works! Seriously, I know the bike mechanics there, they are pretty good at shining things and rubbing down the frame, fixing derailers, changing tires and all that other bike stuff...but I don't know it they are that much fun! Just kidding guys...

So I scoped the scene a little better... it was another bike. Not just some bike getting fixed for the guy down the road or another triathlete. It was Spiderman's bike. My bike was cuddling in the corner of Bike Works with Toby Maguire's bike. I had to break it up. I had to end the madness and tell my bike to GET HER HEAD in the game! Race day is coming and I can't have her day dreaming about Toby's bike and her new summer fling!

My bike is officially off limits to sleep overs in bike shops from now on! If you see any little Scott Contessa mutts running around please send them my way... my bike is grounded till race day! And Toby (I mean Spiderman)... shouldn't you be saving a city or something! There is no time for biking in Kona! And keep your naughty Colnago on a leash!

As for me... Just over a week till the big day. Today was my last feisty run. 11 speedy miles and the legs are ALIVE! No pain, no injuries, a little pooped (but that is FINE it is TAPER time!) Tomorrow is my last ZIPPY ride ( I do have more runs and rides) but tomorrow is gonna be ZIPPY! I got new ZIPPS... and tomorrow I test ride them!

Happy taper to everyone that IS in taper mode and keep your bikes LOCKED inside if you live in Kona, Spiderman is on the loose and his bike is up to no good!

That is RI-DONK-U-LOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Tobey freakni Maguire...well, rest assured, he's married, and I do believe has a kid. He seems too decent to cheat!! How freakin funny!!! And the more ridiculous part is I would be more excited if my bike were next to YOU (or some other famous pro tri person) than Tobey Maguire!!!!!!!

Wait, this is really his bike. I thought that was a joke.. maybe I just don't get it. Seriously though, would you put your name on your bike? What if I put my name on the bike! It would take up the hold top tube!! You make me laugh.. I love it! Reap the taper, be the taper & enjoy it!!

You're so funny Bree. If there are any little Scott Contessa mutts running around Kona, how much would you sell one for? I need a new bike.

Love the storytelling i.e., Spiderman's bike, not Tobey's, but Spidey's, naughty Colnago, bike sleepovers, bike babies.

OMG, too funny!

Have fun on the new Zipps! We'll be cheering you on from Madison, WI on race day :)
