Ok, maybe I got more than a raging case of the want to stay in bed, can't swallow, not even thinking about training today, bird flu, but that my friends is the more memorable.
Second to that comes to mind the weirdo staring at me while I was running like a hamster in the hotel fitness room. What's this you say? So Saturday morning, before my case of black death set in, I got up at 6am to log a little quality tready time (you know, keep CoachE happy). In case you missed out my last treadmill run, the not so skinny of it is thatI am not sexy ledy when I am grunted out mt runs. There's no make up and no casual pony tail tossing. I am all about getting down to business and sweating my way through the run. Well this is no different at 6am. Here I am chugging along trying to get a couple of miles out of the way before the long day, and along comes Mr Creeper with his coffee. Mr Creeper proceeds to stand directly in front of me in the window (thus obscuring my view of the vacant, and need of a good cleaning, pool) and sip his coffee while staring straight at me. To give you a better idea, Mr Creeper was probably mid-40's, balding with a hottie comb-over, and dressed all in black. Black turtleneck tucked into his black dress slacks, paired with some black shoes and a black belt. Yes, I had time to look, he was staring! He stood there for a solid 5 minutes. IT. WAS. WEIRD.
Anywho, back to the show. I got to touch base with some cool peeps, hob know with some of the other vendors, and oggle lots of gear. Here's a few of my fav's....
QBP has rolled out (excuse my punn-iness) a new line of components known as All City, and here's my favorite part:
And the show stopper, if I do say so myself, the new Saris T Bones. Hitch rack extraordinaire, this bad boy comes in at like 12lbs, schleps 3 bikes around town, has a quick release that lets you pop it off the hitch and take it inside (garage, house, or in my case TINY apartment) and put it on its included base and use it as storage. Yeah, its just THAT cool.
