Our last real ride turns out to be a doozy: 111.4 miles (longest ride yet) with some super steep hills and, for my group, a couple of mechanical problems. I talk about some group tension and am proud of everyone for pushing through.

I dedicated today to myself. Joining 4K was one of those things I was not “supposed” to do. It did not directly lead me to a job or set me up for graduate school. It was not on the typical student path. But it was what I WANTED. 4K is no easy undertaking, so I dedicated today to myself for taking a chance and following my dreams. I also dedicate today to Team Seattle 2013 – 27 people just as crazy as I am!

Today is for us!
