Goal accomplished, 200 miles in June

Today I completed my 200 miles for June challenge! I would like to say that it was an easy ride that I did with enthusiasm and vigor. However, the truth was I had to drag my lazy bum outside; I didn’t want to move. Every mile seemed to take forever and I just wanted to go back to my comfortable little home. 
That being said, I am glad I did it. It was good for me to get moving instead of sitting at home and eating crackers and Costco’s parmesan artichoke dip. 
I must say, there are a lot of beautiful barns out there. Barns are one of those things that seem to make a picture perfect.  I especially love the red ones; they look so striking nestled in the green grass with a few horses and cattle surrounding them.  Here is one that caught my eye.

I will show you a close-up of that horse. I have never seen a more sway-backed horse in my life. I would love to know how old it is.

He-he in that picture the horse looks like it is nagging me. (Couldn’t resist) 

Here is one more barn that I loved. The windows on it are amazing.  I’ve never seen a barn with such beautiful windows. 
I rode 20 miles today. Thank goodness it is over. My arms hurt!


  1. Congrats on reaching your goal! That's very exciting.

    Also, I love the picture of the horse and barn. It looks so peaceful :)

  2. Thanks! It really is the most beautiful place to ride.
