Anyways, it was a GORGEOUS day Sunday, so we started off excited and enthusiastic. Alyssa's fiance Matt was in town, so he joined us. We were biking a favorite 7+ mile loop, and the first two laps passed quickly with lots of chatting. The third was challenging, since by then the sun was up in full force, but we had a good chuckle about an older man we spotted biking in socks, sandals, jeans, and (wait for it) suspenders. Don't worry, like the fitness blogger creeps we are, we snapped pictures without pausing our ride.

Aside from the suspender man, other highlights included a dog in a bike basket and a little girl out with her dad wearing bike shorts and a jersey. I could barely contain my excitement at that cuteness factor. After the third lap, my stomach was growling so we took a quick break to refuel and relax for a minute. A Clif Bar and water never tasted so good! That break was just what I needed to get out there for one last loop. It wasn't easy--by the last few hills, my quads were burning and my shoulders were tired, but we did it! 30 miles! A new personal distance record woo!
