A year ago today...

I rode my first winter century. I was going for the century a month challenge, and didn't make it. I came close with two in February, but I couldn't get the first one in January. I can't this year either. But, I remember the ride. I was wiped out by it. By 80 miles I was wishing I'd never gotten on the bike in the first place. My girl friend called halfway into it to see how I was doing. I got home and needed 3 miles to ride to make a full century. I rode around the neighborhood until it was a full 100.21 miles. I got off, and took a long nap.
