theflyingturtle Couldn't be more excited about a piece of #art than I am right now. I gave @la_diablaroja an idea and this #masterpiece is what she gave me in return. I'm so incredibly ecstatic to hang this in my home...when it's finished! #beautiful #dark #howifeel #whatfriendsdo #HUGEcanvas 1w

theflyingturtle I finished the best worst ride of my life. The longest ride I've ever attempted. The Venus de Miles 51 mile road ride in Longmont, Colorado. It wasn't 51 miles and a few little hills, it was 55.8 miles and more hills than I had planned on. I rode dizzy from altitude, crashed before mile 10 and gained some amazing road rash, adjusted my ride to stop getting dizzy at mile 17, got leg cramps at mile 30, was constantly hounded by a medic who must have thought I was a quitter until mile 40, began riding in rain and lightening amidst temps that dropped from 85 to 50 at mile 41, hit a personal mileage PR at mile 42.6, then at mile 45, I finally found out what hail feels like at 14mph, at mile 50, the water in the bike lane was so deep that our shoes were submerged as we pedaled, at mile 51 (our supposed finish) there was no finish in sight. A few miles later, we finished. Cold. Soaked. Exhausted. Elated.

So, today I got a new tattoo to commemorate a personal achievement and bucket list feat. I, Melissa Gilbert, did it! I have stuck with it, I have worked for it, and I am proud. Proud to be a cyclist, finisher, and a non lazy human being. #BikeForever is my new personal mantra. I couldn't have done it without the love, laughs and support of my husband @jamesgilbert13 , the friendship of @wattsnsunshine , the push from @yetitulsa , or the camaraderie of the @tulsa_tough Divas. Thank you all.
