I was having some major issues with the gears on my new bike, took it to my local bike shop, they fixed the problem and put these bad boys on complimentary for the inconvenience:

IN LOVE. I have honestly increased my avg speed about 2mph - SCORE.
Now the bad news:
Yesterday I was finishing up a long bike ride after work when an inconsiderate driver decided to not look both ways before pulling out in front of me. I thought he saw me so I sped up, he proceeded and the side of his HUGE ASS truck hit me. My thought process after hitting the ground:
2 - If I can not run the marathon this weekend I am going to kick this huge guys ass Hanna style (**movie**)
3 - Turn off the Garmin so my time is accurate.
Clearly you can see what is priority in my mind?
Funny thing, the guy did not even know he hit me... he thought I 'fell'. I really wish people would pay attention when they drive. Anyways, he wanted to take me to the hospital, I don't believe in present day medicine, so I opted for a ride home.
I am so thankful there was no oncoming traffic or I would have been toast. My dad tells me it is a good 'learning experience'... sure Dad - how about teaching me this life lesson next week, AFTER my marathon.
This morning I have a swollen knee, shoulder, and hip... some gnarly gashes and bruises but I am ALIVE :D My Dad does not think I should race; but I have put way to much time into this to not. Set backs do not determine outcomes. If I have to cross the finish line limping, you bet your ass I will :)
