Best Idea we ever had!

Meet Blue.  

She is a Craigslist find and might be the first thing I even bought off craigslist. I have sold things but I have never bought.

In Portland bikes are more numerous than cars and dogs.  While driving through downtown I regularly get caught behind a street bike which I swear adds 30 minutes to my commute. I mean do they HAVE ride down the middle of the road?  Anyways, after living here for a few years I made up  my mind I would NEVER turn into a biker. 

Well, Monday at 1:00pm I officially became a bike owner.  But, let me tell you this bike is only made for downhill and flat streets.  Grass is even out of the question.  But, you know what?  I love Blue!

You may be asking, why I all of a sudden decided to buy a bike?  It is because of this guy:

My very athletic and talented hubs decided he was going to start training for the Portland marathon.  Which meant  he would be running and running a lot.  Which also meant that he would be running long distances for long hours.  I neither wanted to be running long distances or be at home by myself for those long hours.  So, Kev came up with the best idea I think he has ever had!  Blue.  While Kev runs his heart out, I am right next of him keeping him company, keeping his time, and carrying his stuff!  Blue and I are Kev's marathon support team!
ahhhh hahahaha!! Doesn't this picture crack you up?!!

We were quite the site last night on our first run.  I took the sidewalk and Kev took the bike lane.  Now, If I can only convince the Portland Marathon Committee that I need to bike next to my team on the actual race day!  
No, I am not yelling at Kev in this picture.  This face is what my college roommates coined at my "sexy face".  Why didn't anyone tell me that when I am trying to look sexy I actually look scary?!!


  1. Bluuueee! I LOVE her!! She's perfect. You are going to have so much fun riding this summer!

  6. YAY!! You got your bike! You are so adorable - and yes, that's some sexy face! ;)

  7. Ah haha I am laughing so hard for so many reasons you cutie! You have the sexiest sexy face I have ever seen. And I love the action shot, look how far your knee is poking out :)
