Today was a pretty amazing day. It started out bright and early with my Pelotonia ride. I still get goosebumps thinking about all the people who came together to accomplish the goal of raising money for cancer research. I’m so grateful for all of the people who rode, volunteered, donated, and even those who sat out in front of their homes cheering us on.
My day consisted of riding with some coworkers and just chatting along the way. We took our time and enjoyed the breaks as they came along. I did have an unfortunate incident with muscle cramps, which made me have to take a 2 mile trip to the next rest stop in a sag wagon so that I could get a little bit of first aide. I had to swallow my pride on that one because I’ve never needed aide like that, but now more than ever I realize how important the support teams are to have a successful event. Especially an event that big.
After my muscle cramp incident I was able to get back on my bike and finish my ride. I’m a bit sore right now but I feel good about it because I know my soreness is a result of doing something good for someone else.
