After a week back at “home” (my mother-in-laws guest room) we are off again on Chapter Two of the Grand Adventure. This time it’s on two wheels (well mostly).
We are headed to Eastern Washington to beautiful Lake Chelan for the next five days to enjoy the sun, the lake and to participate for the fifth year in a row in the ChelanMan Triathlon.
Unfortunately, I have not trained for this Tri as well as I have for past years, but I’m not too worried. The half mile swim will be the hardest, but the 5K run and 12 mile cycle shouldn’t be a problem. And since I am never trying to beat any time (just make it across the finish line) there is no pressure. We do this for fun. Not for bragging rights.
After our time in Chelan we head to Spokane where we will begin a 250 mile bike ride. Ever since the ride I did last summer across Washington State (425mi) I have wanted to do a similar ride, but unsupported and with my husband. So we have mapped out a ride that will take us from Spokane to Kellogg Idaho, then to Pullman WA and back to Spokane. We are in hotels or B&B’s the whole way so no sleeping bags or tents needed!
I am excited to cycle in this beautiful region and look forward to sharing this part of our adventure with you along the way. So watch for more posts soon as we embark on Chapter Two – on Two Wheels!
Go. Be. Fabulous!!!
