Gerty had no issues on this final stretch. Thank goodness because I was extremely focused on Key West.
If you’ve not been to the Keys, it’s basically pieces of land (islands) connected by bridges.
One of those bridges is 7 miles long. I was nervous about getting a flat somewhere along there as I would be walking Gerty a ways. No place for cars to stop so Kris wouldn’t be able to get to me there.
Mile markers are a big thing through the Keys. Locations are referred to by the mile marker they are at. Kind of like exits on the NJ Turnpike.
I was heading to mile marker 0…the end of the road.
Once I got to mile marker 10, it was a sprint to the finish.
Now it was time to celebrate with my pit crew.
We’re going to spend a couple days in Key West and plan to be home on Saturday. Excited for that. I’ve got to get some golf in because I’m playing in a Member/Guest tournament at Maryland Golf & CC in 2 weeks. There’s a possibility that I will suck. Sorry, Snappy!!
I’ve got lots of specific people to thank. That will be a separate blog. Right now, I’ll just thank all of you for your continuous support and encouragement. You helped me keep going through some frustrating days the past few weeks.
I’m pretty tired…I think I’ll go home now.
Ride no more.
