New trails are always fun to ride because you don’t know what to expect. It turns out that this bike path went through an area with vacant lots, a railroad yard, and some abandoned buildings. There was hardly anyone around which seemed odd.
It’s weird how you have a life-changing experience and then **poof** it’s over … there’s this vacuum of space that was once filled with the training, the encouragement of others, the adrenaline, and the anticipation.
Thank you for your encouragement and prayers as I prepared for and participated in the triathlon. I accomplished my goal: I finished! I can’t tell you how amazing it is to set a goal that you never thought you could do, work towards it, and then have the opportunity to fulfill that goal.
