Gosh, I’ll be honest with you. Yesterday was tough.
Thankfully we avoided the rain!
After my post I wrote while waiting for ice cream, about a mile back on the road, I wasn’t sure we’d make it the rest of the way.
But a few friends and family members sent me encouraging texts and facebook messages right about then. Just when we needed them.
Seriously, I wanted to cry. But those words seem to give us shot of adrenaline as I read them aloud to Bill. Thank you, loved ones!
The last 8 miles were the worst. Head winds as we headed north. I turned on our music, and Bon Jovi helped take our focus off the pain. (You can pray as you’re listening to Bon Jovi. We proved that!)
I thought of my mom much of yesterday’s ride. I have no idea why. But in the morning I had the thought, “I have to tell mom about our breakfast with the cows.”
I find it amazing how I still have those thoughts every now and then. She’s been gone 7-1/2 years.
But she would have asked me,”What have you had good to eat?” So I’ll share that with you…
-chicken salad sandwich
-big dill pickle
-chicken ceasar wrap
We were exhausted last night but ventured downtown for the festivities. Slept well, even though we woke to 59 degrees in our tent this morning.
Beautiful day today with only 39 miles. Whoo hoo! In Mason City tonight.
Port-a-potty lines are long. Long enough to write a blog post!
Have a great day, friends! Will check in again later!
