When I first got my BMC with the cool Zipp wheels and the incredible PowerTap, I was in love. It was new. It was cool. It was amazing. That was than, this is now.
1400 miles later, 3 flats, 2 batteries, 10 washes (1 by a friend, a team member), at least 35 tubes of NUUN, 2 new team kits, and countless hours on the saddle - I'm still in love, but not in the same way. Let me explain.
Have you ever seen a guy walk to his garage, open it up to show his vintage Corvette? Have you seen the passion? You may not see the sweat, the tears, the love, but you do see a car. It has been well used, it becomes a part of you.
That is exactly how I feel about my bike. It is a part of me now. Picture the joy on the guys face showing you his Corvette. Now think of me next to my bike. The tears, the sweat, the love is the same. The only difference is that mine only moves forward with the daily work and daily deposits I have put into Ironman training!
I look forword to Ironman Wisconsin with you and all my team members and buddies!
