so today was more of a 101 on bike mechanics than anything. I was a little frustrated not being able to workout as long and as hard as the rest of the group. But after refueling the belly and mind with wasabi - it was a good day. Like Diana said, patience is required for mechanical issues. Thanks for lending me the 15 - looks like I have some more gear to acquire. I'm going to take my time with that though - I swear I should find more sponsors or start working at the bike shop. It's getting ridiculous. Savings? What savings?
