Seattle eastsideMy first century, woo hoo!

100.2 KM! Oh man am I psyched this evening!

I live in Bellevue so I took the 520 trail to Samamish river trail to Burke-Gilman trail all the way to University distict. It seems that the Burke-Gilman is closed right under the Freemont bridge for some construction. What is that all about?

Anyway, the trail closure turned out to be almost exactly 50 KM from where I started so I just turned around and went back.

And I am not that tired actually. I should have done this sooner.

My time was 3 hr 30 minutes. Not too great. I'll try to get that under 3 hours.

Cool!

Congratulations . Don't know about the Fremont bridge closure, though. The locals will have to fill you in.

I didn't know about the BG... don't go there much.

Yeah, STP is definitely on my mind for next year.
