    Was a pretty cool ride (although some of the road surfaces really sucked) Did my first 100 miler, just under 5 hours.

    I was able to get 62. I had a slight crash after rest stop 6. My wheel went into a rut in the pavement and threw me into the ditch. Jammed my arm into my ribs. I was able to finish but not until a long sit along the road and a long break at rest stop 7 finishing at 2:15 pm. The parking lot was almost empty.
