Hi It's Vanny, I'm new!

Hello, my name is Vanny, I live in Miami and I just started cycling...I am definitely a newbie to the road cycling life... I am about to buy a new Trek 1200 or 1.2 tomorrow at noon, still havenít decided which one. I really want to get in shape and train for a marathon one day or a charity event. There are a lot of bicyclists in my area and every time I see them I wish I was doing the same so here goes nothing!
