Bike(Maine) with Mike with Mike McDermott
Posted: September 5, 2014
Tomorrow is the big day!
I’m so excited that the start of BikeMaine 2014 is just one day away. I’ve been looking forward to this all summer. It has been hard not to wish time away in the meantime, so I’m glad that this is finally happening.
Physically, I go back and forth between feeling highly confident and wondering what the heck I’ve gotten myself into. I know doing 60 miles in a day isn’t going to be a problem for me. But, then I think of doing another 60 miles the NEXT day and I pause. And then day 3 comes along and there is another leg
to cover… This will be a totally new experience for me. My plan, especially at the beginning, is to take it easy, stop at all the rest stops and scenic sites, and try to enjoy every minute. I’m sure there are any number of motivational quotations about life
being the journey, not the destination – that is going to be my guiding BikeMaine philosophy.
