It was an interesting ride, this year. This was my second year riding, but my first year riding with someone else. My brother was excited about going and made it through the first day (which is no small feat) but started experiencing some severe hip pain and could not finish the second day. So sunday I rode alone. The weather was great and I finished a bit quicker that I did last year. I’m still sore today, but that’s to be expected.
As for next year, I’ve got some friends that say they want to ride with me. But I’ll be in Grad school next year and if I don’t think I will have the time to train then I may put it off for a year. Just have to wait and see.
