Always an Adventure

Today’s ride was all about rolling with the punches. I went down to Virginia for a change of scenery, and met up with Kendra for a little ride. The day seemed to be cursed from the get go, and we just had to laugh as our ride ended with us staying warm in a public bathroom as Kendra warmed her Raynaud-plauged fingers in a canteen of warm water.

As Kendra and I both know, if you don’t enjoy the ups and the downs, you’re not going to enjoy the Iron distance 🙂 It was fun for me to get outside of Baltimore for a ride. And more importantly – I have a new riding friend! I’d consider today a success.
