What limited your ability to perform faster:

Today wasn't about speed, it was getting my wife through her first century, she didn't have the best of days, she felt lousy on the bike from about mile 5...she gutted it out and made the full ride...thank God for pickle juice and Pepsi but I am so Damn proud of her....

Event comments:

This event covers up to four states in one day depending on the route you choose. MAJOR kudos to the race director for pulling off a fantastic route and phenomenal aid stations all day. I want to come back and do this hell..errr....ride again it was that much fun.
