I was SO excited when Heidi wanted to come to my neck of the woods for a training weekend! And it was the perfect weekend for long rides, long runs, AND beach time! Not to mention - I was pumped to have a non-family member stay at our new house!
To start off the weekend - Chef Jason (AKA Big J) made us a fab dinner of fresh fish tacos and stone crab claws. And wine. I don't know about you, but to me that sounds like the best 'pre century' meal ever! At 6am the next morning, Heidi and I piled all of our gear into the FJ and headed up to Vernon, FL for Tour de Ranch century ride. Vernon has a total population of 20 people. No joke. But it was the starting place of our Century. This is my first 'bike' race ever. We had no clue what to expect, but our plan was to treat it as a long training ride with pit stops. This is the first event put on my our new Panama City multi sport team Hammer Down Multisport !
This is what the start of the century ride looked like:
