STP in a day - epilogue

>> Monday, July 13, 2009

RAD and I got up at 03:15, ate breakfast and drove up to meet the team at 04:30. Nothing like doing an all day ride on 4 hours sleep!

Felt pretty good riding in the morning, Spiz got a flat but overall everything was going smoothly. We ate and rested in Centralia, but soon encountered pretty strong headwinds and most notably the heat! It was 30C outside but felt like 40 on the bike. Frequent water stops helped.

There were plenty of stops, by estimate I ate 6 Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, 3 turkey wraps, 10 bananas, 6 slices of Banana bread, 10 Fig newtons, 10 Oreos, 5 SweetNSalty bars, 2 Cliff bars, 2 oranges, 2 Gels, 5 bottles of Gatorade, and 10 bottles of water.

We crossed the finish at 8:45p and after stopping to change at the hotel, I enjoyed some tequila and Pork sliders.

Yes, we look like dorks but c'mon, it 05:00 at this point...
