... before the pain
Somehow I managed to forget that Sandra is a bit of a 'masochist' and LOVES a challenge, so when I asked her if she wanted to join me for the 'Rosarito/Ensendada 100 Kilometer ride' (down in Mexico) she said "yeah", but I wasn't sure if she'd REALLY commit to doing it (not all people seemingly consider being on a bike for four or five hours, going up 'endless' hills 'FUN') ... well, next thing I know, she's getting all the equipment necessary, and after a couple weeks of training, she's showing ME some good 'training hills' .... heheheh, and here I thought I was gonna have to go easy on her (^_^)
.... So, a good group of us went down there for the ride (most of us have been biking for a good while now), and some of my friends (along with me) were warning Sandra about how hard some of the uphills could get, to 'pace' herself blah, blah, blah ... specially 'cause most of us have been lazy bastards lately, AND haven't done a whole lot of biking, BUT anyway, to make a long story short, with only a couple months of training, Sandra kicked ALL of our 'seasoned biker' a$$es!!!
.... so here's a photo at the 'goal line', while Sandra was just kicking back and waiting for the rest of us slowpokes to get there ... damn her and her little runner legs!!! (^_^)
... how 'bout them apples?!?
p.s. thanks to this race and my forgetful a$$ (I forgot to put on sun-blocker), I have the 'sexiest' farmer's tan I've ever had!!! :)
