To the dude who said encouragingly with a smile, “only 20 more miles to go.” Better, would have been, “5 more miles until the next rest stop.”
I likely would have caught a cab back to the start line had it not been for the fact, I was in a State Park and I didn’t remember to bring any cash with me.
50 flat miles yesterday, 60 HILLY miles today. Elevation gain 3665 ft. Burned 3000 calories. I liked going downhill at 30 mph, but there was a price to pay on the other side. I wish I were a better climber. I really want hills to be my friends. I’d like to have the skill set of a mountain goat. Something to work on.
