It was a hope
It was a dream
It was a desire
It was an ambition
It was a personal challenge...
The day was perfect;
sharing my passion with my life partner,
the sun was out,
the air...just the right temp for a long ride,
I did not feel (the usual) back pain,
no wind to speak of accept the wind in my sails as I flew down the hills,
the up hill ride...a cake walk,
not much burn,
just shouts of joy echoing accomplishment!
It didn't feel real!
Mind and body were one!
I was very Alive!
surreal: very strange, like a dream.
-Oxford English Dictionary
In the end, the only challenge was deciding to do it
