Eighteen days until race day….am I really ready???? This is the big question that we are all asking. At this point, does it even matter what the answer is? We will be at the starting line ready or not. There is not much we can do about it now, short of making sure our tires are pumped.
It gives me such peace of mind to know that Julie Young has been making sure we are all ready, and it hasn’t just been up to me. I was able to give this a test this Sunday. Several of us traveled to the Eastern Shore of Maryland for a long ride. This ended up being my longest ride ever at 110 miles. Not only did getting in this much mileage give me confidence that I will need at the starting line, but I can honestly say that I felt consistently strong throughout the entire ride in spite of the head winds.
Thank you Julie, for making sure we are ready for the race of a lifetime!
