ULCER ride 2009

ULCER 2009

I did this.
I finished.
The headwinds made me cry, burned my eyes, and chapped my face.
The hills between miles 85 and 95 made me second guess my sanity.
The gusts that nearly knocked me off my bike several times scared me.
Total saddle time: 7:21:21 - I don't want to sit on my bike. Ever. Again.

I did it.
I finished.

The wind did suck.


But what sucked even more was doing it without you :(

I'm sorry! It sounds so miserable! I hope you have recooperated. And that you won't completely abandon your poor bike.

Yeeeee-Haaaaaw!!! I'm so proud of you! I saw a bumload of cyclists on Saturday down here and I told Tavis you were doing a ginorm ride and I wondered if you were one of those peeps on the bikes. Turns out you were!

You're freakin' awesome, M-Cat. For reals!

You are awesome! I consider myself impressive when I ride my bike to Becca's (a whole 2 blocks away!
