A Note from Fatty: I have been loving reading all these 100 Miles of Nowhere race reports — it feels like I’m at a really awesome family reunion. Today there’ll be more reports, with the blog updating pretty much every hour.
You know what else these reports have done for me? Get me totally energized about ramping up my fundraising efforts for the fight against cancer. You people inspire me. Thank you.
I’m a 100 pounds overweight true fat cyclist, and yesterday I did something I never did before: I raced 100 km. The longest I ever cycled before was 76 km. Once. I’m proud.
And I won the Snailwatching-women-in-Munich-Division of the 100 Miles of Nowhere.
My race was so boring that my adventure of the day was the following:
- On my first round a grapewine snail blocked my path and I just managed not to run over it.
- On my second round I was prepared and rode a wide arc around it.
- On my third round I forgot about it and just missed it by an inch.
- On my fourth round somebody else had run over it. At least I didn’t do it.
RIP grapevine snail.
By the last round it was only a spot on the road, and nothing really happend in between. And I managed not to die of boredom.
Can’t wait to hear more interesting stories!
