Tough Girl

Last night due to the heat and upcoming weekend races we did a team ride. You know how those, we'll ride easy rides can some times get a wee bit fast? Well, this one at the beginning sure did. There are some tough hill series on this ride, and for Jenn, the ride was going to be a stretch.

But you know what they say, "That that does not kill us, makes us strong." Its hard to explain to people that that is how cycling goes. You don't get better unless you ride with faster people. I won't say better people, because fast and better are not the same. They are just faster. And faster makes you work harder, and because you work harder, you get better. You also hurt, really, really bad. Really bad.

So kudos to Jenn. She had her doubts. I told her that if she expressed them one more time I was going to have to break out the belt. And in the end... she did it! Tough girl. And by toughing it out, she will get better.

I'm really proud of you, Jenn. Leaps and bounds...

Thanks Karen!!! That was one tough ride, but so very glad I did it.

I'm also glad you didn't have to break out the belt! :-)

Yeah, for someone so unsure of herself at the parking lot she kick butt out there on the roads...
