agony of defeat or thrill of victory ?

a.m. ride started off at 6 am and was damp, cold and a little headwind. I had and out in back in my head that is roughly 20-25 miles. At the turn around point in Newport I see a pack headed the other way, probably 10-15 riders, most matching but what the heck if I can hook up and not get spit out I'm game. But the light took FOREVERRRRRRRR and I spent the next 5 miles playing mind chess, that if I was hitting every friken light, surely they had to hit some. No such luck they diesled away, never to be seen again. I fealt defeated for a bit, then reminded myself how lucky I was to be back out here with the ability to do this. I say Victory !! 

ride- 22.8 mles
stoke - 100%


  1. Noted on Saturday, let me know.

    Let me guess, that one light before the river coming south, Brookhurst, Magnolia, maybe even Newland and Beach?

  2. Brookhurst damn it !!!! And I was really want to go to superior or the little turn around just before and then seen them and got all excited.
