Day 6

The trails didn’t fail me.
There was no dilly-dallying today, just a few very short stops to stretch and drink, but otherwise I was having a blast on the trail. You would think it is fun to stop and sit around and relax (and most people do enjoy this when they bike) but I was having an absolute ball on the bike today. For the past five days I had to deal with head winds, cross winds, traffic, stop signs, hills, and other annoying inhibitors. Today, though, there was nothing but the trail. It felt nice to be able to pedal and actually get results from my labor instead of being reduced to heart-aching speeds by the wind. Once I started, the only thing keeping me from going from start to finish in one shot was some serious lower back pain, but I think if I stretch really well tonight it should be fine. Plus, I don’t have to carry gear with me tomorrow so it might as well be Christmas.
Since I got done it such a timely manner today I get to sit around and eat and think about what tomorrow, the final day, holds for me. West Virginia here I come.

    1. Can’t wait for him to get home so that he gets to “rest easy” and all of us can do the same. Cannot wait for you to be home and off the roads! I am so unbelievably proud of you. We’re all pulling for you!! God speed.
