I posted my reply in the linked thread and I hate to repeat myself. I say I hate to repeat myself. Did I make myself clear? I hate to repeat myself. Well, hate is a strong word, but I really do not care to repeat myself.

Great Job, Crazy Lady!!!!

Great job! I hope to do a metric later in the season, but only after I get my legs, and also, uh, callouses in special places.

Don't go getting unnecessarily carried away.
