    The monkey is off my back...

    I did my hundred today. Seemed to take FOREVER, but I got it done.
    I rode w/ one of my customers. It was his first. We stopped WAY more than I will during the race, but we also had to deal with heinus traffic conditions, and horrendous road surfaces.
    The traffic was so bad at one point that a firefighter yelled at us that we were going to get run over!
    Let's just say that I think from now on I'll stay up in my little traffic free nirvana..
    But yeah, 100 in the books and DONE! So I guess one month from today I'll be racing (and I use that term loosely) IMAZ..

    Yeah, RM!!! I was just thinking about you this morning wondering if you'd done the deed yet. I'm glad that it went "well." And how nice that you got to do it with a customer who was having his first. What a nice occasion. One month from today will be a good day for you!!!

    You'll be fine (well, as fine as you can be on a marathon after you've done the first two legs). remember last year you were also very ill for a time.


    I'd love for my LBS owner or bike guru to come on a training ride with me.

    Congrats on your hundred tis training season. That's so cool. The most I ever did last year in my tri training was 25 or 30 for our long ride.

    RM-congratulations on completing your 100. Glad you were able to do it in a safe manner as well as having a customer with you. I hope it was a good experience even with the traffic.

    You are quite an inspiration. Starting a business is enough to keep most people more than busy! It is really great that you are finding a way to do this extensive training, too.

    Very inspirational to me!

    Great job RM! See, you can do it!

    Hey, I might need to snake some of your long routes off of you. I'm pretty sure I'll have around a 6 hour ride on my schedule that Sat. I'm in town. I have to say, I'm a little scared to go riding in a strange city and state, alone, for 6 hours on roads I don't know. If you know of any cycling clubs or people whom I might ride with, please let me know.
