Maria has given me the okay to be a spectator. She invites others as well. I plan to witness her effort first hand.
Thank you all again for the encouragement. I have 10 days left! …enjoying the taper. I did my last "Suffer-O-Rama" (Spinerval DVD) on the indoor trainer this morning. We just had the course certified and it’s 19.994164 miles taking the shortest possible path (crossing through on-coming traffic around blind curves, etc.) each loop. That’s about 31 feet shy of 20 miles. Hopefully the wind and the hog trucks will be light that day.
You see the mapping above has the distance at 20.1 miles and the course is certified at 19.994164 miles. At the end of the day, we will see the official distance she rode. Again, the best to Maria as she continues to prepare. Now, 9 more days…
