Less than 6 months

It is less than 6 months before I leave for my Transcon. Matter 0f fact, 6 months from today I will be spending the night in Spokane, Washington. Wow!

I received my ride packet from PAC tour today. It has me pretty scared. It mentions several times that for a cyclist to be truly successful on the Transcon ride they need to be able to ride 200 miles in 14 hours. I am not there yet. Oh, crap, I am not there yet! My best 300k ride 192 miles was in 15 hr and 30 min.

So, I am going to continue to bust my butt following my coach's plan and hope and pray (and pray some more) that I can overcome the obstacle standing between me and my dream of riding my bike across America...

First of all, anyone who knows what a Randonneur is, should eventually, with practice, be able to ride 200 mi. in 14 hours. You may not be able to until the first day of your trip, but on that day, adrenaline will help you fly like never before. That being the case, train your butt off, anyway!

Cool blog, sis. I love being able to see into your world. Like I said the other night, you do not have the same parents that I do- you can't if you dreamed up this awesome goal- but I am so proud of you... words can't express.
