Success!

We did it! We did it! We did it, Hooray!

I, Jenny-Jenny rode my bike under my own power all the way from Seattle Washington to Portland Oregon.

204 Miles in 2 days.

I AM EXHAUSTED!

And...

I'll tell you all about it... Tomorrow.

Like, Mt. Rainier, pink flowers, knees, pizza, trail mix, hills, wind- at our backs, and in our faces, pace lines, pot holes, traffic lights, 2nd wind, surprise adrenaline, sunrise, sunburn, fishermen and an unexpected pull from a friend.

Guess what? It didn't come with a yellow jersey, but I won a stuffed lion, a bouquet of flowers and kisses from beautiful girls. Kiley and Rinzey, you made my day. (names changed to protect the innocent=]) Thanks Ron and Dahlia! We're so glad you came!!!

Life is good, and I can do Hard Things!

WAY to GO! I knew you could do it. I bet you are exhausted! I really need to get that vinyl done for you that says "I can do Hard things" I've been meaning to but it seems like something always gets in the way or my bro. in law borrows my laptop. I will get it to you though. Also when would be a good time for Nicole and I to stop by. We need to visit! Congrats on your STP! I am proud of you!
