So off I went this morning for another 100+ kilometer bike ride. First 50 awesome. Then I look to the left and the right to see the biggest fattest most ugly .. black cloud. Uh oh. Ok it's in the distance, I can do this. And I did. I spent 25 kilometers having the most exhausting. most wet, most horrible bike ride of my life, this far. Sheeting rain, hail the size of small soccer balls, wind that makes a girl grip her handlebars tighter. Oh man was it ugly..
I got back to my moms 75 kilometers after I started and was a muddy mess. My shoes were so wet that I'm pretty sure I wrung about 3/4 cup of water out of each sock. Yep it was that awesome.. I kept doing little things.. Just until you hit X, then if you make it to McDonalds.. But when I made it to McDonalds near Glenmore reservoir, I can't figure out if the blue sky near Woodbine was the "after" or the "before" so I figured I should skip the hot hot coffee and bike my butt off just in case.
I learned something today though, I can do anything! Nothing is going to stop me. Not the blinding rain, not the hills from he$$, not the sad memories. Nothing is going to stop me. I can bike 200km, June 26/27th and I am darn well going to have fun!!
As a side note, I could have stopped at McDicks. Woodbine had already gotten the rain. Actually mom was waiting for a rescue me call. Ha, Jenny doesn't need a rescue. But darn its nice to have a great momma, ready to come rescue me. :)
