Horses In The Mist Coming Up Again.
On 10th October 2013 I mentioned that I added this picture to my blog post for future motivation. As I sit and type this post I have an aching body. I suppose it serves me right for not riding consistently for more than a year. About two weeks ago I was informed that we would be riding again in the 24 hour race.
Late this afternoon we were on our mountain bikes doing 8 kilometres. Around 6 kilometres my backside couldn't take it anymore, but we pressed on. Tomorrow morning I will have to drag myself into an upright position when I get up. Whilst riding I commented to my wife that two years ago we were so fit that we didn't feel a thing at the end of a long ride. Now it's hard slogging to get riding fit again - like starting all over again.
We are really looking forward to the event. Both my wife and I have full suspension bikes which should make the ride a lot better. This time I am going to take pictures which will help with my future posts. Hopefully I will find the horses still grazing in the early morning mist. I think I am going to take both cell phones along for pictures because they are more portable than my camera.
Well, thanks for reading and I will keep the posts coming. Oh yes, the 24 hour race is in about two weeks time.
It's now almost a year later and I see that readers of this blog like to have a look at this blog post. Therefore I have decided to add two more photos of the horses that I took pictures of whilst riding in the race. You can see that it was quite misty in the early morning. These horses were magnificent and added a special ambiance to the event we were taking part in. Something I will never forget.
