I've heard that wasp stings stimulate the adrenal system but this is ridiculous.
How did the topography compare to Emporia?
thx all! miles 180-230 i was not super stoked on the ride, despite the amazing sunrise. but of course the last 10 miles were ok :)
topography compared to Emporia was about the same amount of climb overall but the Iowa hills are shorter (distance-wise) and steeper than the Flint Hills. but both areas have about the same amount of relief.
i still have a scab where the wasp stung me! seriously!
Glad I good help a little bit.
