Great job Curtis and Ron! Sounds like you had a wonderful day.

Some sort of pithy irrelevant one-liner should go here.

You knocked it out of the park. Milan - San Remo is 7 miles shorter and on the same weekend. Maybe next year?

As I've crossed the finish line at most of the centuries I've done, my thought has typically been "I can't imagine this just being the halfway point!".

Nice work, guys. Curtis, take a few days of well-earned rest and come out to the Los Vaqueros Dam trials next weekend.

Congrats to both. Amazing how strong the two of you are still going!
That's a fun report too.

It's so sad to see two friends suffering from mental illness . . . .

Way to go, guys.
