On ride day, I was a bundle of nerves. I started chatting with a couple at the start who were both mountain bikers who had recently taken up road riding. She had never ridden over 30 miles ever, and he didn't have a ton of road miles in, so they were a good match for me. By the end of the ride, we'd become a team, helping Jenn with some pretty rough hills and encouraging each other. I finished strong and with some fuel left in the tank.
|Feeling strong at the finish!|
So, today, I signed up. I'm excited and ready to rock this one! This goal will be good for me, and is for a worthy cause. Even though August seems years away on this blustery January day, I'm warmed by the prospect of this goal.
I hope you'll consider supporting me with a donation. Please go here to see more about my personal ride and to donate online.
