I was thrilled to finally get to ride with V today, after having twisted her arm in getting her to join TNT. We rode a 7.5mi out-and-back on the Silver Comet with another TEAMmate, T. T is an interesting, fun lady. Last year, her sister (whose leukemia is in remission) rode Tahoe with the TEAM, and asked T for one (compound) thing for Christmas: to get healthy, quit smoking, lose weight, ride Tahoe with her, and to LIVE. Last week, T quit smoking, and this week was T's first ride with the team. I'm so excited for her, and I think she's going to be great. She was a lot of fun to ride with.
Maximum speed: 17.2 mph
Average speed: 9.7 mph
Distance: 14.22 mi
All in all, a good day. I really am going to start riding three-day weekends, though, so that I have a two-day recovery (Saturday and Sunday) after an intense Friday. We'll see how that goes.
