51 miles?!

Monday, July 28, 2008

Yes, that's right. The woman who couldn't even ride a bike three months ago this weekend rode 51 miles with her boyfriend and friend. I have the sore tailbone to prove it.

I was dirty, smelly, and exhausted, but you know what? It was completely worth it. I felt great afterwards, so accomplished.
We rode from a tiny little town called Milford to just north of another little town called Morrow, about 25 miles away, then rode back. On the way back, we got stuck in a storm so we had to hang out under a tree for a few minutes. We're gearing up for a ride to Xenia/Yellow Springs in a couple of weeks.

Last week was rough and stressful--and my eating suffered. We ate out almost every meal except breakfast for about five days straight. I didn't work out as a I regularly do, and I felt lethargic. The bike ride was just what I needed to shake me out of my slump and get me back to my good habits.

I continue to be amazed at what my body can do!
