100 – In The Bag


August 2012

I made it! It was incredibly hot, very long and awesome.

I’ll do a full write up after I eat, and more importantly, nap.

Some quick stats first:

98 miles, 5h:12m:25s – 17 minutes faster than my goal.

18.8 mph average, max speed 36 mph.

5,276 calories burned (give or take).

1,558 feet of climbing, 70% of which occurred in the last 20 miles (bastards!).

I drafted the first 50 in an excellent pace-line – 22.5 mph average. The group broke up after that and I hung with a guy named Chuck for about the next 25 till I dropped him and finished on my own.

I’m beat, but incredibly happy.

    I haven’t gotten to my first century yet… I have a marathon in a couple months that has been keeping me out of the saddle more! But I can’t wait to do my first one, hopefully next spring. Congrats, it’s a great accomplishment!

      Thanks brother. I’m really psyched about it. Cycling is the first form of exercise I’ve ever liked enough to put the effort in for the “marathon” distances.

      Thanks brother, coming from you that’s high praise indeed! I was happy to get that one done. Thought about giving up when I hit all of those hills all by my lonesome, but then I passed a bunch of people and got a bit of a sixth wind. It wasn’t all downhill after that but it was close.
