Pretty Peddling

Saturday was a warm and gorgeous Northeastern fall day. My gym teacher friend Liz spent the night (on matching air mattresses side by side). After a night of gossip and giggles we set off to check off #19 on my 30 Before 30 List: Go on a 15+ mile bike ride. She recently completed her first triathlon so I knew she’d make a good bike riding buddy.

We started at the 25th and Walnut Street entrance to the Schuylkill River trail. We dodged plenty of walkers and joggers as we passed the art museum and boathouse row on our way to the woods.

Liz was a little tougher to keep up with than my last bike riding partner (sorry dad!), but I was proud to finish. We rewarded ourselves with lattes, sandwiches and tomato soup at our favorite little French cafe.

What kind of goals do you set for yourself? What accomplishments are you proud of?
