– I didn’t die on my 50 mile ride over the weekend! I finished the ride feeling strong and with a smile on my face. It helped that I had two friends riding with me. The mental aspect of a long ride is the hardest part for me and it really helped having company. I would have been tempted to drop down to the 35 mile option if I had been alone. Being a terrible blogger, I forgot to take any pictures. The only mistake that I made was under-fueling. Once I realize this and downed a few Huma gels and I was fine. This was my first time using these gels and I really liked them. It’s an interesting texture with the chia seeds, but I liked the texture much better than Gu. Oddly enough, I can’t wait to ride long again!
– My FitBit decided to die on me last week which had me really sad. The customer service rep that I spoke to recommended that I reset it, but I couldn’t since my charger was a cheap knockoff version. This is when FitBit showed its true colors….he offered to send me a new one for no charge! I cannot speak highly enough of FitBit customer service. All of my interactions with them have been positive and I love their product. And no, I’m not paid to say this. I just love them.
