Not the country, but it still was pretty neat!
I sure wear that shirt a lot…
Highlights, in chronological order:
-Waking up next to a nice little pond in our cozy sleeping bags and tent 😉
-Watching the start and then getting breakfast even though we didn’t have time for the Diner
-Leaving ~1hr after start and enjoying good weather and scenery for the 1st half of the ride
-Cheering on Cameron @ about mile 20!
-Cheering on Julie (& Casey) @ about mile 21!
-Cheering on Charity @ about mile 24!
-Following Charity through the finish (~3hrs, 27 mins)
-Seeing a random lady collapse near the finish :-/
-Cameron finishing under 4hrs
-Julie (&Casey) finishing… hopefully Julie will qualify for Boston next time around
-Snacks at the finish line
-Rachel betting me a gatorade that she could run over a orange traffic cone without crashing. I was happy to lose this bet and cough up the change @ Stewarts 🙂
-Riding in light rain
-Getting a little wet and dirty
-Getting soaked and covered in dirt from the road
-Rachel getting hangry and acting like a person from the Snicker’s commercials “You’re not you when you’re hungry” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MixNh9L7G5M
-Riding up the big hills back to the start line
-Changing into dry clothes in the field where the car was parked
-Eating our leftovers from Chili’s the night before on our ride home
