I did it!!!

Good Morning!

It's been way too long, have to make time to update my blog.
My ride went OK- I finished and that was important for me. We started out in Central Park, over the Brooklyn Bridge and ended in Prospect Park in Brooklyn. Immediately after leaving we hit a couple of rolling hills and I was dead last & thought to myself how pathetic and I'm not gonna be able to finish this ride.

But I did not give up! I kept going, pushing myself more and more and finished the ride and was not LAST in the end! It was a great experience one that I will never forget and one that made me realize just how out of shape I am but I felt great that I completed my goal. My tears almost rolled down my face when I was on top of the Brooklyn Bridge because I knew the finish line was not too far away. It also gave me more determination to continue forward so I registered for the bike MS event on Sunday, October 3rd - 30 miles Yikes! I'm training and there aren't any hills but it is an extremely popular ride with almost 5,000 riders and that makes me nervous but looking forward to it! I also registered for the Tour de Bronx 25 miles on October 24th & may register for another ride in October - - - I'm hooked !
Below is a pic of me at the finish line, I will share some more pic's of the ride later.

Lost an additional 4.4lbs this week and it gives me more motivation to continue on my path to a healthy life!

Will try to post more later.

    emoticon Great job for getting a goal done, enjoying it, and realizing it is you and the bike, not where you finish. You are an inspiration. You must be hooked since you signed up for more races right away. ENJOY!
