Remember when you accomplished something that you felt was a challenge but weren't sure if you could do it? Here's a photo of my wife who completed her longest ride ever at Glenwood Springs. She's been off the bike for several years due to school, starting her own business plus nursing an injury.
On the trail
On the homestretch!!
It was tough the last few miles as we had a pretty good headwind plus it was warming up but she resisted quitting and letting me go get the car. She even made it up "No Name Hill" which has a nice kick to it. I didn't want to tell her that for most of the ride my heart rate was just above my resting rate because of the moderate pace. Hey, I still remember that first 12 mile ride I did a few years ago-plus her bike outweighed mine by about 20 pounds. Proud of her!!
