I always feel wiped out at the end of any ride 200k or longer. Funny how that works. I remember finishing a 200k a couple weeks before PBP 2011 and I was pretty worn out. I was wondering how I was going to finish a 1200k, but I had a good ride on PBP. On my first 300k, I remember cresting a hill just before a control thinking that it was only 100k to the finish, and that wasn't going to be a problem because I had done that so many times before. And I was right, it wasn't a problem.
