what was supposed 2b a 92 mile ride, ended up being only 40.51 miles. the plan was 2 ride from Lincoln 2 Deshler for my boys baseball tournament. take-off time was 5am; however, no headlights. so i waited until 6:30am & made it as far as Friend before mike & the boys picked me up. it just didn't work out like i had wanted, but i still got a good 40 in. the morning was beautiful with very little wind.

rode 72 miles yesterday from lincoln 2 sutton. bought a brand new odomoeter 2 hours b4 take off & the darn thing didn't work. urgh. however, the ride was still great. the longest stretch was getting from lincoln 2 crete. once i headed w out of crete the ride was awesome. roads r fairly flat with nice wide shoulders. people were very friendly along the way. i stopped in friend 4 some water & soda & several folks inquired about my journey.
2 heck with water bottles on a hot day. it's easier to stop 4 a stretch & guzzle down a huge bottle of cold water. my goal was 2 reach bg's corner in sutton and purchase a gatorade and nature valley granola bar. that's all i wanted. i ended up buying an all sport bcuz i like the open top of a bottle vs having 2 suck it out of a pop top and i had 2 settle on little debbie granola bars. i was surprised, they were quite yummy. i would recommend the fudge with chocolate chip. get me some more linda. :)
my husband drove down 2 pick me up & we had a wonderful dinner with some great friends of mine. go linda. can u bake me some of those macademia nut cookies? yum yum
tonights ride: destination TBD; distance=40 miles

First Place Walk to the red cooler (podium). I did it! 1st was my goal!!!!! Can't talk to much about my XC skills as I was definitely not one of the more skilled riders. But I managed with WIT (whatever it takes). :) Killer hill at the end, I swear someone loaded my bike and a$$ down with weights or maybe I just needed pure cane sugar from a Jones Soda (lol). Don't know how I did it - mental I'm sure. heehee
Kevin actually came out accident free this trip and he's all smiles. LOL Way to go Kevin!!!!
And then there's Boe(ff)er. How much were those brats Greg? and the Jones Soda - did you finish it you sugar muncher? :)
Greg & Kevin - you guys rock! Thanks for a good time and a bunch of laughs - anybody want a water bottle?
