100 Miles of Nowhere, Daddy-Daughter Division

05.11.2010 | 4:01 pm

I’m happy to report I am the repeat winner of the “my neighborhood” 100 MoN. The course was a 1.6 mile loop, which is pretty flat, and potentially fast, but the wind and my focus on not overtraining took care of the speed.

My daughter joined me for 30 miles of the ride, as shown in the attached photo – her longest ride to date.


Oddly, no neighbors asked what was going on.

We did run into our Pastor on Friday night, however, and when my wife explained what I was going to do he became very excited – he had apparently been looking for a sermon illustration relating to people who work very hard but never get anywhere because they lack direction.

Overall, more fun than this should be – thanks for organizing the event.

    Hey Fatty, this has been so much fun to read all the victory stories today. Can hardly wait for tomorrow’s edition.

    Thanks again for putting together this crazy-ass race. Looking forward to next year.

    BamaJim, how much fun to share this with your daughter. Not to mention the church!

    Ian, I’m don’t know Fatty’s prediction but I’ll put money on someone associated with a Dark Horse.

    Having just started, there is no way I could do this now but I do plan on attempting the next one. Thanks for all the inspirations everyone. Hopefully when my story is done, I can inspire some people.
