Monday All-Day’er for 400k Pre-Ride: 218 miles

Monday All-Day’er for 400k Pre-Ride: 218 miles

Yesterday I had an upset stomach with related diarrhea. It zapped me of energy, and made it impossible to get ample sleep for today’s ride which started at 4 AM from Coopersburg, PA. It was more windy than I had expected. And it was cooler out than I had expected between 4 AM and 10ish. I never was cold, though. My “illness” persisted through the ride causing me to make stops for close to 5 hours. Accordingly, it became apparent around the halfway point I was not going to complete the ride timely. So I had to chalk this one up for mere training miles. Oh well.

The nicest thing about the ride was the event organizer offered to come pick me up so I didn’t have to climb my way to the finish line where my car was parked. Really nice of him. A shout out of thanks goes to him!
