    I'm REALLY tired today...a little sore all over.  And very happy.  Can't wait to do it again next year!

    She was not strong. She was valiant. Radiant. Brave and broken. The beauty she discovered in the aftermath was unparalleled to anything she had known before, because it had come at such a cost.

              Nope.  I've not had significant sit-bone pain since my early months on a bike.  Consistent saddle time year-round makes ALL the difference.  And I am on a relatively firm saddle (Selle San Marco Aspide Glamour Arrowhead...say that 5 times fast!).  Looks like this, but in white:

              Less is more with bike saddles.

                  Oh dear.... looks like I might need to take a little trip to pick up some Brewery Vivant! (perhaps if I'm actually functional come Old Boys')

                   

                  So, it was more than 50% harder than a century?

                   

                  Well done!

                    How thoughtful of them to give you a convienent little slot to pee on the go....nice.

                    I've done my best to live the right way. I get up every morning and go to work each day. (for now)

                      zoomy, youre cool.

                        Bwahahaha...ewwww...I'm not an Ironman, gross!  Though my bike is so filthy after riding through rain for a few hours that pee would have been probably the cleanest thing to run down the frame. Tongue

                            It's the "ish" that'll get you!  Joking  Great job!  I didn't know MI was that far across.  Big grin

                            So bittersweet,
                            This tragedy
                            Won't ask for absolution;
                            This melody,
                            Inside of me,
                            Still searches for solution.
                            A twist of faith,
                            A change of heart
                            Cures my infatuation.
                            A broken heart, 
                            Provides the spark
                            For my determination.

                              It's hard to say if it was 50% harder than a century.  It was easier than my first century, really, but maybe not 50% harder than the century I did 2 weeks ago--that one was hot, humid, and hilly.  It helps that it wasn't hot, yesterday.  I talked to a couple of people who agreed that coldish weather and rain was MUCH more conducive to riding well than heat would have been.  I really appreciated not having to deal with sunblock at all.

                                As the crow flies it's probably closer to 130, but we were on noodly backroads for most of it, so that added distance.
