Dude, that's awesome. Honestly, i didn't think you had it in you (not today, at least). But after i saw you up near the turnaround, i knew you'd finish. Congrats, that's definitely something to be proud of.

Thanks, I agree. I haven't trained AT ALL. I do feel really accomplished though. I don't know if I'm going to attempt the longer brevets this year, but I want to do a lot of club rides and some centuries and try the brevet series next year. Hey, did I mention I also BROKE A SPOKE about 30 miles from the finish? I was like, "Fuck it, I'm finishing this bitch, even if I have to carry my bike."

It turned out to still be funtional, after I ripped the spoke off. The was a little shimmy, and I didn't go too fast, but it worked out all right.

It was fun riding with the fast group for the first 30 miles. Sorry I couldn't pull with the rest of you. ;-)

You kicked much ass, congrats back!

Sorry, bad attempt at humor. Shan mentioend wanting to fly kites this morning. And I figured you would be too sore to go running with a kite.

Woo! Congrats honey, I'm really proud of you! I want to start riding a little with you here and there. Maybe in a couple of years I can try a longer ride. Or, maybe I can tailgate at the finish line again. ;-)

"...and I'm gonna go home and put a hose down my pants and drink some beers..."

You drink beers through a hose in your pants? Most of the rest of us just use our mouths. ;-)

Congratulations anyway, even if the ride did traumatize you into not being able to use your mouth to drink beer.

I hope your bike seat was comfy or else your balls sure are gonna be aching. I recommend a banana seat for the ultimate in ball cushioning.
