Our first day of RAGBRAI consisted of arriving in the overnight town of Okoboji.
No biking today, unlike the other 10,000+ bikers. We arrived ready to go. They did not. They looked how I might feel tomorrow at this time.
We are choosing to relax tonight before starting out tomorrow. A nice dinner of cheese, crackers, dip and a turkey sandwich. Saving our calories for pie the rest of the week! 🙂
We have the luxury of a hotel room tonight. (Thanks to some great friends!) The rest of the week we’ll be “roughing it” in our tent.
Our kids left a few hours ago to return home. I had a meltdown, complete with tears and questioning why I’m doing this crazy thing. Bill’s hug and encouragement reminded me why.
But I will miss those two who I’m blessed to be a mother to.
So, we’re calling it a night, and we’ll be up before the sun, ready for our first day of biking. Together.
Look for the “Road Hogs” if you’re near the route. We’ll be the only ones on a tandem!
Goodnight from Okoboji!
