Needs a Name!!

So you are a triathlete. You know you are a triathlete #537- When you push yard work to the day you don’t have to train.
After the long weekend I was pretty sore and a bit woren out. I was looking forward to allowing myself to relax. Then I had the opportunity to borrow a power rake and finally give my lawn some longer awaited TLC. It was something that had to be done and with the crazy training schedule this was really the only time I could get it done. I am always amazed to see how much dead grass comes out of a lawn after you power rake.

Since I now own my new bike I thought it would only be fitting to give her a new name. Now I am completely open for suggestions, so I am going to leave it up to you for a new name. Please feel free to be creative. The more the merrier. Thanks for the help. Isn't she BEATUIFUL:)

Ok, I'm not ready to give a name suggestion yet, but I will be thinking all day. I will say this, though. I don't think your bike is a "she." It's definitely a "he" color and I think the seat is up too high for it to be a "she." Therefore, my name might be a bit on the masculine side. :)

Oh, and nice job getting that yard work in! When you get married, marry someone who isn't a triathlete. That way, you can leave to train and when you get home, the yard work is done! Seems to be working for me right now...don't tell my husband I said so though! ;)

OH, that is good Timmers - on too many levels... although Steve did call it a 'she' and I'm not sure that "Rookie Magic" has a feminine feel to it. ;)

How about Greased Lightening? If you don't know the lyrics to that song, you need to look them up to fully appreciate this suggestion. Please pay careful attention to the line after "You are supreme, uh huh..." and "You know that I ain't braggin'..." and you will know what I mean. LOL!

OK Steve, first- that's a sweet ride you got there! And, I'd have to agree with Tiffany that it seems more like a "he" bike...so I was thinking of a more masculine or tough-girl name and all I could come up with were names that made you think of a gi-normous hilbilly chick with no teeth...sorry. But Cheryl here came up with one that I think is awesome! It's a name from the movie Sweet Home Alabama...Felony Melonie. She sounds fast...Ü

Ok I finally got one for your list. Blue Steel! Like in Zoolander.

Steve, steve, steve. What about the May 1st swim? All the ice is gone now. It will be great and you'll enjoy a hot cider or cocoa so much more.

Oh, about the bike name. You're gonna get pretty fast and nobody will think of you as a rookie. That bike is going to be used to crush people. How about Blue Crush (a movie name, but a bike that does just that). Steam Roller (which is what you'll do with it). Or BS Roller (Blue Steam Roller - I like acronyms). Finally, I offer Wind Cleaver (the wind won't even know you were there).
