I survived! We made it to Maine right on schedule and I’m pretty sure I never want to see a bike again. I’m still a little shocked that I was actually able to accomplish something so way crazy freaking far out of my comfort zone.
…But now it’s on to the next adventure! My best friend from preschool is getting married this weekend. Damn we are getting old. Anyway, she got me this gorgeous necklace from that trendy jewelry brand, Dogeared. It is this mountain/pyramid/shield type thing and it’s supposed to be a reminder of my inner strength. I’m definitely feeling like a warrior in my poofy yellow bridesmaid dress. Bring it on!
Okay so I am taking a little hiatus from the blog, but it’s for a really good reason. A crazy one, at least. My father and I are taking three weeks to ride a tandem bike from North Dakota to the coast of Maine. 1,800 miles and eight states between us and victory! The two of us are actually hoping to complete a cross-country adventure that we started over ten years ago…
Once upon a time,12-year-old Meghan agreed to bike to North Dakota with her dad. It was the first half of a cross-country trip that he had been dreaming of for years. It was even written down on his official “Bucket List.” After three weeks of grueling 100 mile days in the sweltering Montana heat, we made it to our destination. It was one of the hardest things I have ever done. It was torture. Both mentally and physically, this trip took everything I had.
So now (because apparently I have some sort of obsession with doing impossible and painful things,) we are going to finish what we started. If I survive this, then I will be back at the end of June.
Wish me luck!!
