My daughter Courtney graduated from high school last week, with honors! Graduating with honors is a big deal because yours truly never made the honor roll, and neither did my dad. Courtney kicked off high school with a 2.9 freshman year GPA and picking dandelions at the tennis matches. A lightswitch went off the summer of sophomore year and she made the honor roll every semester, while playing varsity tennis, making it to state junior and senior year.
I am so proud of her that when it came time for a graduation gift I thought I would do something really special and give her ... a bike.
Kind of lame from someone who runs a bike company, but I decided to make Courtney a very special bike: a pink Madone with her favorite panda bear on the front of the bike and the back. Lots of pink and white accents. Trek's Project One guru Eric Maves did a great job with the detailing and Courtney absolutely loves it!
