I look forward to the write-up. Some of those miles look very steep on the map. Looks like you were able to pick up the pace later, tho. Nice work!
Really nice Sandy. You never cease to amaze me.
The picked up pace was the result of going around on the road and not going back up and over the mountain like everyone else! :)
I was thinking of you when I was descending to the finish. It took everything I had to keep moving and try not to inflict more pain on myself. I wondered how you would manage. You definitely took the right route. It was over 1000' down - a constant pressure on my knees and my toes pressed into the front of my shoes.... Still, I really enjoyed everything else. Good to run into you out there.
Going around on the road was a good choice. Climbing up up up and back down down down over Bob's Hill was very tiring. And your route, having driven that road I know, is beautiful!
