The Alien has a new Spaceship!

I had been looking for some time for a god opportunity to get myself a road bike. Buying a new one wasn’t the best option for me because they are either too expensive, or it’s too complicated to order one (a lot more than getting a new pair of shoes). Last night I saw one that I liked in ‘mercadolibre.com’ (something like ebay, but here on the south) so I went immediately to check it out, it was in really good conditions, my size and the price was good, so I bought it.

After spending some time adjusting everything this afternoon I took my spaceship for a ride, and all I can say is that IT WAS AWESOME!!! I used to bike a lot a few years ago (when I was 16-17), and I loved it, I’m still not sure why I stopped doing it. The only reason that I can think of is so that I can enjoy it this much now that I’m starting again.

But in the past I had a mountain bike, actually, this was the first time in my life that I used a road bike! It’s different, the position, the speed, the shifts, the brakes… But it’s still an outdoor sport that I love. Now I have to start going out and finding good routes, I think that I will do some hills twice a week on weekdays to avoid the main street’s traffic, and do some long routes on Sundays mornings. But I would have to alternate weeks so that I can do long runs on Sundays too… But I’ll worry about that after my 1/2 marathon in may 4th.

Heres a picture of my new spaceship:

Finally, I am running, biking and swimming! Ironman, here I come!!

  1. Nice bike! I too have a dream of biking, running, and swimming. So far I’ve only got one of those under my belt so kudos to you!

  2. Cool bike! Have you taken it out for a spin yet? I have a mountain bike in the garage collecting dust. It might be time to pull that thing out!

    I am,however, the worst swimmer ever…
