End of an era

This weekend was a big event for Team Pink. We didn't go racing, we didn't go for a monster training ride, we didn't even spend the weekend camping on a mountain. All three of us are now college graduates. Gone are the excuses about class, homework, and studying getting in the way of training, and in come new ones faster than Leipheimer in a TT.
With the crazyness of people coming into town, job applications going out, and the worst weather we've had in quite some time,* I haven't gotten in nearly the training that I should have recently, and there by don't have any good biking stories to tell, after all it's hard to generate biking material off a bike, but I will say this.
I woke up this morning feeling lost because I only have three bikes in my garage. It's raining outside, and my cross bike is three hundred miles away. It's really unfair, I put more time, energy, and money into my fleet than is smart or reasonable and now I don't have access to them because my car wouldn't be able to take them all out of here when our lease is up in a month. I don't know how normal people live without a small armada of bikes, I like the fact that I have a bike that's perfect for just about every situation... or I would, if they were here with me.

*We had graduation indoors for the first time in 6 years, and to make it worse, it wasn't even on our campus. Who's brilliant idea was that.
