It could have gone either way. Riding neck and neck most of the year, Team 15 Purple and Team 41 Juanita have been closing in on that 1,000 mile marker and it could have been either of their horse race. Juanita was closing in on 990 late yesterday afternoon. I got a text from Christine of Purple that she was at 992 around 7:00 PM and planned to ride to the finish.
How fun to get the text that she made it! And for the record, her total is now 1,001.69 miles. I don’t know about the rest of you, but that’s a lot of miles I need to ride to catch up with her!
Congrats to Christine and her horses Bling and Brooklyn and her good mule, TAZ. We are so proud of you! And also a tip of the hat to Juanita. I am sure she toasted her as she crossed that line. It’s been that kind of competition. I think we will see riders reaching 2,000 miles before this race is over, don’t you?
