Friday night, I encountered something I hadn't experienced in quite a while, honest-to-goodness, full-blown pre-race-day jitters! I've run many 5K, a couple of 10K, and plenty of half marathons, but when faced with my first-ever group bike ride, I'm about as frightened and self-conscious as I was the night before my first 5K. Would I look like a total poser among all the "real" cyclists? I took a training run to burn off some steam, but many of those lingering "whatifs" remained. Ah, the great unknown!
