Trek on the lose...

Tuesday night, I had just gotten home from the gym and microwaved a bowl of black beans and rice for dinner to chow while watching the Biggest Loser and simultaneously skimming the new Pottery Barn catalog (I’m on the lookout for a turquoise-colored lamp shade).


I know you’re thinking, wow Laura, what an exciting life you lead. We also somehow got on the mailing list for these strange old-people catalogs selling stuff like hernia devices and bunion remedies. But, those don’t have lamp shades. Anyway, I digress.


Back to the BL and this week’s challenge – a 24-hour spin-a-thon with each team trying to load the most miles on a Trek FX!! Neat idea. It was also the longest challenge in BL history. 


But, I have to admit that I had some cringe-worthy moments watching the bigger guys ride too small of a bike frame. And where was a WSD, hello? No wonder they were all hurting by the end. Not changing the seat height alone would have tortured me. The only thing I can think of is that the show’s producers told Trek they were only going to have the 2 bikes for the challenge.


Well, the happy ending is that all of the contestants are going to get their own custom Trek. I hope they love theirs too!
