But instead, to my confoundment, I found a paradise – seemingly custom built for me!!! The weather was so perfect…and the terrain was so beautiful…the fans were so enthusiastic…and everything about the race was so massively impressive that I couldn’t help but fall in love with the entire day.
In fact, I found myself slowing down during the early parts of the race because I didn’t want it to end so soon!
Rest assured: This was the first and only race of my entire life that I secretly wanted to last forever. And yes, I realize that’s not normal. Not even for me.#ButThatsWhatHappened!
PS Yes, that’s a 40+ year old woman trying to kick my butt on the bike…and doing a really good job of it. “BRAVO!!!” as they say in Quebec! I just love this sport!!
