|I LOVE MY KONA|
Even though I have been consistent with my mileage, as of today, my longest ride has been 50 miles on the Katy Trail. I arrived at the Weldon Spring Trailhead solo around 9am. I asked my FaceBook friends if I should go right or left. My first response was left, so I headed toward St. Charles telling myself there's beer there.
It was a beauty of a day, light wind and 80 degrees. The ride would be minimally uncomfortable. I planned on 12mph, consistent pedaling. I stopped to take some pictures and watch two turtles play. I reached Black Walnut MO, never heard of it, in two hours. Right on time.

I turn around and headed back.

This ride was necessary to build my mind, it did get a little boring. Even though the view was beautiful as I rode from town to town, it would have been nice to have company. I know I have to be comfortable with being alone. There were portions of the DK200 that I rode alone. I need to build confidence, and this is one way to do it.

I need to get packing for our weekend. Camping, trail work and secret stuff. It's tough being me.
