I live in Boston. I decided to go out to Hudson, MA for some items that were previously arranged for me to pick-up, but today I decide I was going to rise the whole distance. While I did not get to Hudson due to some confusing Mapquest direction. I increase my longest ride from 16 miles to 56 miles. I am so happy with myself. I just need to stop a few times for gatorades when my Camelbak emptied. Well, I am on my way to mental preping myself for Cat 5 racing, my current goal for my road bike. Thanks for reading and any encouraging comments people have.
