I have a goal for the end of the summer. Rather, the goal is actually an event I wish to participate in. Rather, the event doesn’t happen on a particular day, but happens whenever the participant decides to do it over the summer. I am talking about Operacion Meurto. [http://operacionmuerto.wordpress.com/summer-challenge-2013/] It”s a 450 km journey across Manitoba, and a person has to complete it in two days. Crazy, right?
Well, I’ve been preparing for it, but I’ve recently purchased a super-awesome bike. And this bike has me sitting in a new position. (I’ve never ridden a road or CX bike before) That said, I did a 47 km ride today, and the part of my body that was upset the most were my hands. But the ride was excellent. The highlight was when I got cut off by a massive soap bubble. (Seriously, it had a two foot diameter) While I would like to say that no bubbles were harmed during my trip, this poor guy exploded as I was approaching him.
Now I just have to be able to repeat my trip four more times in a day, and I’ll be all set!
