Anyone doing the Udder Century in McHenry County IL this Sunday?

My wife and I will be sporting my 50+ jerseys.

Say "hi" if you see us!

I plan to be there and hope to start at 7-ish. I don't know how far I will go. Last weekend I rode 80 miles without much trouble over all and that is a good sign but I did get a saddle sore and that may scuttle my goal of 100 on Sunday. We'll see....

I did it last weekend. Couldn't have asked for better weather. I felt so good, I did the whole 100. It did start getting a little hot toward the end but by then I knew I had it in the bag. It was my first century in three years.

I did it too and I could have asked for better weather! All my training was in weather much like today's. If the weather had been like today I'd have done it much stronger but I did it and number 1 is on the books so I am not going to complain too much. I did not notice anyone in a 50+ jersey but given the crowd and the fact that I don't know what the jersey's look like I could have looked right at you and never seen you, Jamie.
