My mother, Miss hike-the-entire-Pacific-Crest-Trail (from Mexico to Canada) SOLO, has now decided to train to bike across the States from the Atlantic to the Pacific ocean next summer with a friend.
Before last weekend she hadn't ridden more than 45 miles in a day. But that didn't stop her from attempting the STP ride (Seattle, WA to Portland, OR), a 200 mile ride over two days, and not only did she complete it, but she did it in awesome time!
So you understand, of course, why I obviously must brag about her.
SHE IS AMAZING.
Aaaaannnddd, she's a cutie-patootie!
Dear mother, friend, shopping partner-in-crime,
and laugher at all my shenanigans and mishaps:
I'm so, so, SO proud to call you my mother.
