The agony of defeat

80-someodd miles in, and although my body feels fine -- taxed, sure, but fine -- my traitorous ankle hurts so much I can't bear it. This is not something to muscle through. (I tried.)
Sad! And yet, also triumphant. A gorgeous ride on a beautiful day on the sexiest bike I've ever owned. I definitely feel like the ride would have been possible if the last 35-40 miles hadn't been sharply painful. I'm in a good mood. Life could be worse.
