Today was not a great day for me. I woke up and just could not seem to function well. There was no coffee maker so no morning coffee. I got to the first rest stop and realized I had the start of a urinary tract infection. Wonderful, lucky the store we were set up at actually had pure cranberry juice. I continued on at the 20 mile mark, knowing I was not feeling up for a full 80 mile day.
At the 40 mile mark I had nearly fallen asleep on my bike and realized I was in danger. I opted to just hitch a ride the rest of the day. It seemed to be a reasonable course of action. Although it may seem like I am whimping out, if you have never biked with a urinary tract infection you have no right to an opinion.
The church was so nice to us. I was put on the spot to talk about why I was there. I flat out admitted that I have no faith but that I was looking to be part of something greater then myself. I am posting a link to a video I was in as well, where I basically lay out why I would even want to join this project in the first place.
