SeekingBostonMarathon is an amateur's journey to race in the ultimate annual marathon--the Boston Athletic Association's Boston Marathon. This is not an olympic runner or professional runner's advice site, but an "average joe" who got hooked on running and finally reached hallowed ground in 2010 and is constantly seeking to get back to Boston.
As we've talked about here, my Trek Speed Concept 7.0 bike was totaled in my last triathlon. Obviously, I have largely focused on the healing process, but bikes are not cheap and I went through the process of filing a claim through my homeowners policy. Thanks to Traveler's Insurance, they came through with a settlement of roughly $2,100 if I just "cash the check," or can get up to $2,900 with reimbursement if I buy the same bike (at that price) or a comparable bike (or slightly nicer) up to or exceeding $2,900.
As a self-proclaimed runner turned triathlete, I need help from my more experienced triathlete and cyclist friends. Please take a few moments to fill out the below or comment in the blog comment section.
