I'm a fulltime physician/surgeon, but not self-employed.  I'm lucky in that I can afford to travel and care for two wonderful horses.  Would Manny and I be ready for a 100 miler if I didn't work full-time?  Doubtful.  If anything, I think my job keeps me from overdoing it or pushing too hard.  We manage 3-4 rides a week weather permitting and I spend  most of my vacations either at LD rides or camping with the horses.  Sure I would love to someday do a 100 miler!  We're chipping away at the training.  We're planning several more challenging LD rides (more hills, more weather) this season and a 50 in the fall if all goes well.  I cannot complain, I have a wonderful life and wonderful companions.  Isn't that what its all about? Jennifer.
