I guess we’re going to have to find out the answer to that question really soon. I’ve mentioned that I sometimes get excited and on an impulse do stupid things. Well I may have done it again…
Last week I decided to sign up for the NYC 5 Boro Bike Tour.
Do I own a bike? Why of course not! That would be crazy talk, I mean who signs up for a bike race when they actually own a bike?!
Okay, so no, I do not own a bike, but give me some credit here. I did plenty of research and found out that there are a number of bike rental options for this race!!
So maybe the bike tour is a week after my Nashville Half Marathon, I’m not scared!
So maybe the last time I was on a bike was in San Francisco about 6 years ago. I rented a bike for the day and road all over that town. Later that night I cried myself to sleep as I agonized in pain…
Regardless of how much pain I was in later that day, I remember having a lot of fun!
Other exciting things about this race?
Jimmy and I are doing it together! Yes, Jimmy the amazingly wonderful fiance who generally has no interest in running with said he would definitely do a bike tour with me! I mean, how could I pass that up?
My company agreed to reimburse anyone who signs up and participates in this race! Free race? Yes please!!
Seeing NYC on a bike? Sounds like a no brainer to me!
Lastly, I think it will be a great way to force myself into some cross training this spring while I train for my half marathon!
See, lots of wonderful reasons to do this race!! Maybe I don’t do stupid things after all, just really smart things disguised as stupid in the beginning.
Do you own a bike?
Have you ever done a bike race before?
Know of any CHEAP spin classes in NYC I can take?
