Cross the Line

6/19 Michigander Day 6, 37 miles

I crossed the finish line with “Born in the USA” blaring on the boom box, a smile from ear to ear and people hooting and hollering. It was an amazing feeling. I don’t think I stopped smiling for 10 minutes.

37 miles before lunch? No problem, it’s hard to believe that I can say that especially seeing where I started from on Sunday. The difference is startling, several times through the week I thought about quitting for a day but never did and the reward at the end was made all the more sweet.

I can’t say enough about the people I met on this trip. Everyone that does this tour is positive, enthusiastic, and happy. It really does enhance the tour being able to ride with them.

I’m hooked and I’ll definitely be back to do another Michigander.
