This Saturday I will be riding in my 2nd endurance ride. This time only 25 miles and not 32!
That last 10 mile loop was like FOREVER.
At my first ride( as in first endurance ride EVER) I had a bit of a sitch -e -a-shun. I was supposed to ride with two gals that my mentor hooked me up with.
Well, that did not work out.. AT ALL....
Star was acting like a ninny, I was having a MAJOR panic attack and , the whole drama of the starting line pissy mare/bucky crow hoppy fit and my bundle of nerves, it was clear we wernt going anywhere fast, anytime soon.
So I started to cry that I was now solo to get through 32 miles of HOLY SH** what did I sign up for! ( half freaking out, half totally pissed) , then the clouds parted and two angels came from nowhere ,that let me ride with them. I brought up the caboose for 32 miles, came in 47th out of 47!
But we made it! After about 5 miles, Stars brain kicked in and she was a total rockstar. She was only a doofus for about 45 minutes, then the rest of the 6 hours, AMAZING.
So with that said, this weekend is another big ride. I was only supposed to volunteer and take Star for some quickie trail rides. She was only coming for the experience not to compete. As it turns out there is another gal who is a first timer like I was and wants someone to ride with. I have the patience of Job and I truly don't care if we come in dead last. I will be making sure we finish, and have a freaking blast doing it.
My two angels from heaven are coming to the ride, so I bought them a Thank you gift, for taking excellent care of Star and I on our first ride.
and the Cherry on top?
My Sweetie is coming along and going to go fishing with his kid whilst Star and I are busy finishing our 2nd ride.
HOW AWESOME IS THAT?
Maybe this time I wont forget the lunch meat and peanut butter and not half starve to death.
