I cannot believe I actually did it!
DH and I signed up for a children's literacy charity bike ride which took place this morning. It had the option of doing 10, 25, 40 or 66 routes. Since we have biked 10-15 miles at a stretch before, we wanted to push ourselves a little bit, so we chose the 25 mile option. (not crazy enough to try more than that!)
As the day approached our excitement intermingled with a bit of nervousness, wondering if we'd be able to do it.
Well, yes, we could! There were several hills on the route and even though I crawled up some of them, I didn't have to get off my bike once. I am so very proud of myself and DH and just had to share.
Next week we are doing a 10-mile charity bike ride for breast cancer and then the following weekend a 5K. I absolutely love being able to do more physical things and am so looking forward to what I'll be able to do once I have even more weight off my body.
Here's a pic of hubby and I after we finished - it took us about 2 1/2 hours to ride 25 miles.
