Clemson vs Wofford

I was super excited to be able to shoot the Clemson vs Wofford game on Sat 09/05/15.  In fact, I was so excited I couldn’t sleep at all the night before.  I have to laugh at myself for getting so nervous, but it’s true those butterflies still flutter in my tummy.

There comes a point of how much of a challenge I want, and at this point I am already challenging myself with riding on busy roads everyday, riding through big cities I am unfamiliar with, riding with a not so good hip flexor and iliopsoas muscle, and just completing my 600 plus miles.
