Ride through the Forest
This past weekend I participated in my first training ride! This was important for me to see if I would be able to ride in a large group without getting dizzy or knocking anyone down! The ride was an hour away and the weather was freezing cold! Literally, it was 32 degrees at the start. I wish I could say that those things didn't deter me, but I did not want to ride. Thankfully, Casey knows that I'm like this and tells me that I can do it. So, I took off with a couple hundred other freezing riders. The first 5 or 6 miles had some serious hills that I wasn't ready for, but I'm glad they were at the beginning of the ride rather than at the end. The sun came out and warmed things up which really helped. I ended up riding 25 miles! I'm happy to report I didn't have any of the symptoms that I was concerned about! Thank you Lord for another day to ride my bike!
