Congratulations also on your first ride.
Lynette is so right! (Lynette, your email address is goofed up, cannot email
you, it gets returned) I started out on field trials and then graduated to
competitive trail riding then endurance. I NEVER in a million years
thought that I would ever do 20-25 miles let alone 50 which I sort of did
too. It was really more of a mental block than anything. Not
believing that I could do it but went ahead and did it anyway. It's fairly
easy to do once you keep conditioning. It goes faster than you
think. Try it, you'll like it!!! Oh, and I also said I would never
wear tights, but Claire Toomey told me that once I wear them I'd never go back
to bluejeans. Claire, you were so right. Just love riding in
tights. Makes you a better rider too. Me anyway. Go for the
gusto and try a 50 when you feel wild and crazy. :-)

Never say never when it comes to endurance. Wasn't it Angie
thatsaid she would NEVER
wear tights? But found out that once you
on endurance you do a lot of things that you never thought
you would do.
(Angie will have to send you that post, it was hilarious)
on your first ride. It just gets more fun the more you do it.
And before you
know it you will be thinking about maybe getting one of
those A-rabs and do a
