Hey ya’ll! Wait, I’m supposed to update this thing? Oh yes. That’s right!! Apparently my browser was out of date, and tumblr did not like me. So as you see, I got a bike trainer!! Yay!! It’s old, it’s loud, it was $10 on craigslist- it’s awesome.
As so many others do, I found the listing on craigslist, saw that price! And hopped on that. I was texting the person who had listed this, arranging the meetup, and thought to myself- “Man! This person is so polite! How rare!” I rescheduled a couple times due to financial stuff and whatsuch, get horribly lost on the way there the day of, was horribly late, and the person was still super awesome and nice! Turned out to be a senior in high school who knew lots and lots of stuff about bikes! He showed me how to use this trainer, which was awesome of him because… I may have not figured that out. Sad, I know. I now know how to casually pop a wheel off a bike, yay!
So we got to chatting, figured out he’s a cross country runner as well, and BOY was it awesome to brag to each other how awesome we are/were. Sometimes that’s just really nice, to acknowledge to someone how proud you are of your accomplishments, past and present.
And that’s my story. I know, how action packed. Thank you for being not a crazy person on the internet, Dustin! Let the indoor training commence!
