Focusing on the big picture

Many days on my trip did not find me drinking in dramatic sunsets, lush valleys filled with wildflowers. In fact, many days were emotionally draining as I saw nothing but the things I’d grown up with; fields, cows, rolling hills and lots and lots of trees.

So you wanna run after you bike? Good luck with that

At 7 am morning, Mark ran five miles in the Shoehouse race. I slept. He came in 7th, with a time of 34 minutes, five seconds. Which is so much faster than I can do almost anything. He was not happy with that time because a woman beat him. I didn’t feel sorry for him.

After the race, we both biked 19 miles on our road bikes. I have been trying to increase my speed on my regular route, and since the start of the season I have gone from an average of 14.5 miles per hour to 16 miles per hour. I have done this by pedaling as fast as I can, until I feel like I might puke, and then pedaling even faster. I also think the fact that I have started running has helped.
