50 Mile Ride!

Mike and I are doing the Cache Valley ride in a week so today we did a 50 mile ride. we started here at home and rode out to Western Zirconium, then over through Plain City, up to Farr West, and then back home. We rode through a CRAZY lightning storm, and I was terrified. I told Mike if I died it was all his fault and he could live with that for the rest of his life :) !! The rest of the ride was great until about mile 45. My legs cramped up and I thought I was going to die. Mike said I "bonked". That's what riders call "hitting the wall". I didn't think I was going to make it up Hinckley Dr. I was in tears (yes I was that much of a wimp). BUT I made it! All was well and we finished it 3.5 hours of riding time. PHEW! As nutty as it was I LOVE riding with Mike!
