Everything’s bigger in Texas, right? Well, I sure was! A few years ago my husband and I moved back to Indy to be closer to family. About a year after that, we were very blessed to have the opportunity to adopt twin baby boys! Needless to say, they keep us busy, and I really wanted to be healthy again! I had already started to lose weight, and I actually met my goal of losing 30 lbs. by the time I turned 30 AND I competed in my first Sprint Tri…on a mountain bike. :) Here’s where you guys come in. I took the boys to our closest bike shop (Bicycle Garage Indy South), mainly because I’ve been there a few times before and liked it, and I wanted to get to know the staff better since we were new to the area. I also took them to every other bike shop in town and probably tried out every bike too! I ended up finding my perfect fit at BGI – it’s a Trek Lexa S. The perfect bike for me and where I’m at right now. It’s taken me through a couple more sprint tri’s and I’ve improved every time! Thank you BGI, and especially Robyn, for answering my zillions of questions, taking a few test rides, giving nutrition advice, letting my kids tear up the store (just kidding – I try to keep them in line). I’m looking forward to riding with the group some in the spring!
