8/10/17- The Views

This riding thing is not getting easier. Some days those miles really seem daunting but I am determined to accomplish this challenge. In my life I like to find the positive light in any struggle I am addressing, it doesn’t always work but the attempt is genuine. On my rides, I think about the people I will be helping by participating in the Smart Ride (supporting HIV research and cures), getting in better shape, and finally taking advantage of the beautiful views around me. This week my biggest challenge and accomplishment was finishing a 21 mile ride (yes, minor in comparison to the 100 miles I have to do, but you gotta start somewhere right?!). Not only is it hard to maintain a constant speed that is faster than your usual but when you toss in a GIANT BRIDGE into the mix, it really doesn’t make it easier. I was subtly reminded to enjoy my surroundings as I climbed to the top of an intracoastal draw-bridge and the warning arms came down to allow the bridge to go up. As I savored the break I was able to see above the trees and take in the beauty that was around me. Sometimes the world needs to remind me to get out of my own head and enjoy what I have.

I hope you enjoy the view as much as I did.
