Beautiful sunrise. Fog-laden mountains. Air thick with humidity. Verdant pastures sprinkled with red barns. Sharp ascents followed by roaring descents. Cars whizzing. Thoughts roaming from Seattle to present. Conversation. Silence. Muscles screaming. Sweat pouring. Reality of a dream long dreamt almost accomplished. Testing of legs one last time. Celebration. Reunion. Swapping of stories. Sea of orange eating. Laughing. Reveling in a summer well spent.
