Completed a 27 mile bike ride
Sunday, April 07, 2013
Yesterday I rode in a 27 mile bike event for Talbot Special Riders in St Michael, Maryland. St. Michael's is along the Chesapeake Bay. What a great ride and great views. Even rode up a few hills ( they were bridges, but a hill is a hill to me). My husband is an avid rider and in great shape, so riding with me was a challenge because I am much slower. I am so grateful to him because he paced the ride just right and I was able to finish without complaining or getting off the bike between stops.
When I was finished I felt great! Not just because I got exercise but because I finally committed to something and finished! It was a wonderful feeling and I proved to myself that I can do it!
When I got home I tracked my fitness and excited to learn that the ride burned off 1400 calories! WooHoo! And better yet,...I got up this morning and I can still move
I am looking forward to my next event ride on April 27 in Reston, Va. Although I am a little concerned about the hills in the area...this time I believe in myself. What's even better is we are going to the wine festival at Reston Town Center immediately following the event. It should be a great day. In the meantime..I am going to strive for each day to be a great day!
