We have a lot of miles to cover in 8 days so we have some long days on the bike, including 2 ninety mile days. Today was 93 miles. Days like this require a certain amount of mental toughness to get thru it. We spent many hours playing trivia with each other. Who was the first President to die in office? How many states have only 4 letters in their names? (If you guessed Mississippi, you got one of them).
We stuck together in a pack all day which helped each of us tough it out. I must say, towards the end of the ride there waan’t much conversation, but having my brothers there for every pedal stroke really helped. Beth, you came upon us at the right time for replenishment and to carry all the clothes we had shed as the day warmed up. Hooray for SAG lady and the cold beer awaiting us in your room.
Probably one of my shortest posts ever. Need to get as much sleep as I can. Tomorrow is not as long and Matt joins us tomorrow night.
