Different in a good way

So this morning on my daily quest for caffeine I noticed something a little, well...different. A different mix of people milling about the Starbucks. Stuffy suits and shiny shoes were replaced with Keen sandals (worn with socks, of course) and messenger bags with flashy logos.

Yes, something was the best kind of way.

My conclusion: The annual Trek meeting is underway. (Their headquarters are here in the great state of Wisconsin, in case you were wondering why in the world they would have a meeting here....well, besides this town being consistently ranked one of the top towns for cycling...)

Anyway, why is this important, you might ask? Well a certain cyclist who happens to be sponsored by Trek has been known to make appearances at the annual meeting. (ahem....starts with L, rhymes with dance)

How freakin' cool would it be to bump into a 7-time Tour de France winner on your way to get coffee? (way, way case you were looking for an answer there....WAY freakin' cool)

It makes me want to go for a ride just because of the increased chance of bumping into a world-class cyclist out on the road. 'Cuz that would be freakin' cool.

Ok, I'm going to stop talking like a 12-year-old skater now. I've got to start mentally planning my wardrobe for tonight's workout....'cuz you just never know who you're going to be riding/running along next to (ie getting passed by) out on the road....and since I've never been known to impress anyone with my speed I've gotta bring my A-game in the fashion department.
