Day 2 - 6/9/16 Harvard to Templeton, MA

Feeling just as good tonight as I did last night, let's keep the streak going!  Lots of wind and lots of hills today.  I got a little discouraged at how tired I was after 15 miles– after a handful of big hills but, I took a break before going up another one, maybe even fell asleep for a bit, and when I got back to the hill, it didn't seem so big.  I just have to remember to take it slow.  If all my days start at 8:00am that means I have a solid 12 hours to tackle 3-5 hours of biking, it doesn't need to happen all at once.  

There are many nice places to stop and take breaks.  I'm really looking forward to a burrito and a couple donuts tomorrow.  Warm meals aren't easy when you have nothing to cook with.  That's fine though.  Peanut butter sandwiches and cold cans of beans is enough to keep me alive between real meals.  I stayed at home for too long, I only say this because I miss my family.  It's good to have some time apart though.  It will be amazing when I see them again, something to look forward to, right?
