Riding with boys

Today was my first "go ride with the boys" ride. They say riding with faster people will make you faster. Or it will just make you hurt a lot which in turn will hopefully make you faster. The latter is what I experienced today. I had the pleasure of riding with 6 (fast) guys, one of them being Tom Danielson. Here's the run down of what happened today.

-Get to said meeting spot with Jr. and no one was there.
-A few guys show up
-Get free samples of SUPER yummy scones from Spruce Confections.
-Start riding
-Become annoyed because it is too easy and I am coasting too much.
-Pee break
-My pee break lasts longer than theirs
-Get dropped
-Chase back on
-Get really tired
-Tom D and Chris B pick up the pace as does the wind
-Start suffering
-Start to get dropped, but with encouragement am able to stay on and last untill the gas station stop.
-Be jealous of the chocolate chip cookies they are eating (I'm too cheap to buy one).
-Limp home while they go up Flagstaff.

Yup. That all sounds about right. Except for the cookie part. I'd probably buy two. Hmm...Perhaps that's why I suffer so much. :~)
