Lucy and Ricky Ricardo have nothing on us. The Weisbarth's made it to California today.
|Don't ask me why I'm holding my bike, I really don't|
have a good reason.
I was really dragging this morning and Mark had to give me a little push...I blurted out a few 4 letter words and even a 5 letter word back at him. After a few more miles (and epithets) I got my ass in gear and soldiered on. We practiced doing intervals on some of the uphills and that seemed to help my mood so that by the time we were half way through the day I felt better. My mood definitely improved when we arrived in California. We even rode for a while with Jeff and Joe (the "big boys") and they let me beat them up one hill!!!
After a stop at Subway where 2 can dine for $9.99, we checked into the Quality Inn in Crescent City. I'm not sure this hotel should be allowed to use the word "quality" in their name but I'm not a branding expert. I also think Crescent City should be renamed Crescent Shitty because...it is. I heard a number of people saying how they needed a rest day and we were all anxious to get here. I know I was sure ready to get off the bike today. We said goodbye to Margo Addison (one of Mark's alumni friends from his cross country trip in 2010) and we welcomed 2 couples from Colorado. They sure looked bright eyed and bushy tailed...
Since I'm taking the day off tomorrow from riding, I'm going to take the day off from blogging. Hope everyone has a nice Saturday and I will be back in touch on Sunday from Eureka, California.
