Schuylkill!*

Now say that five times fast…

Today we had 80 miles in pleasant Pennsylvania with about 5700 ft elevation gain on our route. Marah and Jillian kept us going at a speedy pace and we finished at the front of the pack for the first time ever (hear that, mom?). It rained almost all day, but the scenery was beautiful nonetheless. A river (possibly the Delaware) rolled alongside us. Green, meadowy fields were dotted with trees and farms against a distant Blue Ridge Mountain backdrop. Even as rain drops lined my glasses, I could feel the tranquil beauty of landscape in front of me.

Today was our longest ride yet, but it was one of the easier days as well. I can’t tell if it is because I am more mentally and physically prepared, or if it’s because the miles have been more agreeable.
