    "Not so little Red Riding Hood"

    Meg and I finishing the ride in Logan. She's in the blue, in case there's any confusion between us! ;)

    Well, one down, two to go. I finished Little Red Riding Hood on Saturday, 68 miles I might add. Or as I like to call it, "Not so little Red Riding Hood". Yes, it was tough. No, not tough enough that I wouldn't do it again. It was actually pretty darn fun. It is one of only two all female rides in the country. I think I heard there were over 2000 women, but I could be wrong. Anyway, it was fun. We did it in 4:15, which gives us about a 16 mph average. Not fast, but pretty good. There were awesome pit stops with tons of yummy food, and SAG wagons everywhere. We also had police support at busy intersections (of which there were only two. It was in Logan after all). I did it with my sister Meg, who is a super fit avid cyclist, my sister-in-law Kelli, who is a die hard mountain biker, and her friend Heidi, also a mountain biker. We all stayed together for the most part, and had some fun along the way. Thank goodness for Meg who literally, I mean LITERALLY, pushed me up a couple of hills. I don't think I would have made it without her. Of course, I couldn't do a lot of things without her. She's my bestest friend.

    So now I have two major rides left in the season. The next is the MS 150, to which if you haven't already, please donate! That one's on June 24th and 25th. Then the Logan to Jackson in September. 209 miles mostly uphill. I (thankfully) will only be doing one leg of that which I believe consists of 38 or so miles. No biggie. So that's about it. I think we're done traveling for now. I could use a break.
