MS150 short version (super short!)

Thanks to everyone who thought of me this weekend and wished me well. The winds were strong and made the ride very tough for everyone, but we rode through some gorgeous views. I'll give details later. I'm a little sore (shoulders especially) and very tired thanks to two nights of little sleep. Here's a picture of me and Lynette that David snapped as we approached the finish line.

I missed my boys, but it didn't hit me how much until I saw them as I passed by them going to the finish. There were several emotional times during the ride, but nothing like when I saw I-35 (knew I was moments from my boys) and then again when I saw my boys. It's a good thing DV and the boys were far enough from the finish so that I could compose myself for the photographers. Otherwise my official finish photos would show me blubbering.



  • Jessica,

    I am so proud of you! I was disappointed that I couldn't cheer you on at the finish. We had our cat pass away early Sunday morning so the rest of the day was a wash.
    You look great in the photos!

    I can't wait to hear the details of your big ride. After you get rested, look forward to seeing you for a run. We'll be out of town next weekend for Boston but hope to see you the following Saturday. We were hoping to celebrate your birthday with an after-run breakfast!
