It has been a week of ups and downs physically and emotionally, all of the hills we have climbed and all of the downhills we have enjoyed have tested us in ways we can only see if we are paying attention.
Each one of us wouldn’t be here right now unless we didn’t make choices in our past to be exactly here at exactly this moment.
A few weeks ago I couldn’t climb up a step ladder to change a light bulb so I took on my fears with the help of an amazing friend and today instead of being scared stiff going over the countless bridges that we rode over today I found myself smiling and flowing over the bridges like they weren’t even there all while appreciating the views more and more!
I think that today was one of the best days many people will ever have on a bike riding around the hills of Elgin the tracks were phenomenal and felt effortless at times.
Daniel rode like a champ today got stronger as the kilometers ticked past and tomorrow we start in our highest start batch of the epic.
Tomorrow being the last day is extremely bittersweet mainly because something I have wanted for quite a few years is within my grasp and yet I find it hard to believe that this time last week I was sitting in a hotel room not knowing much about my team mate and also not knowing what to expect out of the epic. Just as quickly as it started it is now almost over, the race that is not the friendships that we have gained or the experiences we have had!
In closing think about this: you have made choices in the past that have you in your exact situation for exactly the right reasons! Embrace the lesson and learn from it!
See you all in lourensford! Goodnight!
