Lady Luck, have some mercy!

In one of history's most famous speeches Winston Churchill promised his people only blood, sweat, toil and tears. Some seventy years later Taina faces these very promises. This urban lady has been battered and bruised, in what can only be viewed as a mandatory initiation ritual to outdoor life.

From day one Taina suffered as our group's magnet for misfortune. She drove off the road, got badly bruised, went through not one, but three flat tires (the combined number of flats for the rest of the group was one), and had her bike break down during an especially harsh leg. And scored a few more or less controlled touchdowns.

Yet despite all misfortune, she miraculously arose to face each days worth of troubles and heroically crossed the finish line with a smile on her face. As can be seen here.
