Yes I got my first ever road bike and I love it especially because I got a very good deal on it. I do not know how to bargain; I could be car dealers' best friend paying over the sticker price. This time I decided to give bargaining a try. It took a lot of smiles, a lot of trips to talk to the store owner, a lot of creative arguments but it was worth it. I got a great price on an already discounted last year (like I really care) model bike. Sure, there was an even cuter bike, candy apple red, because you all know how much color matters, but it cost over 1k more and I did not think the paint was worth this much. :) I still think the bike I got is cute hence Road Cutie name.
Other news is that I am finally, I hope, over my cold. OK, I was not writing about it. I mentioned it once of Facebook, I think. It started just before Xmas with a 102 fever. Then cough, then sore throat, then cough again, then stuffy nose. Somehow it all seemed backwards to me. This thing kept bugging me till today. Today was the first day when I woke up without coughing. Cold morning run, then bike ride beautifully cleared my sinuses. I am still coughing a bit but I can live with that. Hopefully I am done with that nonsense for the rest of the year.
