My account of life both on and off of two wheels...... "At least I'm enjoying the ride"

Long road: A new mileage record on the road bike this past weekend.

We rode our mountain bikes on Saturday at Graham Hills for a couple of hours.  Although I rode well and did more technical sections than I have done post surgery- the mountain biking still takes a lot out of me.  So as much as I preferred riding in the woods, the road bike was the plan for Sunday.  G and I left the house with no expectations other than to enjoy the beautiful day together on our bikes.  As it turns out, I had pretty good legs and we were able to make it 42 miles! 

The only thing that could steal my fire that day was the reminder that next Sunday I would feel like junk again. 
Tomorrow is my last chemo treatment.  I guess one would think that I would be a little more excited.  Maybe I will feel different once the last of the side-effects clears out of my system- will all the side-effects ever go away?  I know I still have a long road ahead.   Anyone that has been around me during the last 4months knows that I get a bit grumpy the day prior to my treatments.  I guess it is because I know what is coming.

I do hope that this is the last chemotherapy that I will EVER need again.  

G captures a techy moment.
Smiles all day.  
Long Road.


  1. 42 miles- no wonder my legs were barking at me the next day.... Kept telling them "shut up legs"

  2. Punch through your final week of hell and have a big 'ole kegger!

    Good on you!

  3. I think you are amazing and so courageous. Your honesty and attitude throughout this whole journey is truly inspiring... thank you for sharing your thoughts with us all.
