So, I did the Hotter"NHell 100 today and amazed myself at how well I did. While there wasn't that much climbing in the 100.65 miles (1,959), the wind was a real challenge and of course the heat topped out at106 degrees farenheit. I couldn't help but see the SAG wagons full of riders who didn't want to continue. It's too bad. Anyway, I hung tough and made Momma proud,

Hotter than Hell 100

Friday, August 22, 2014

Arrived at Wichita Falls, TX, yesterday in preparation for this year's HHH 100. It appears that tomorrow's ride will go along with its title since it's forecasted to be in the 100's.This will be my 8th time doing the ride. It is my favorite ride simply because of its magnitude and of course, the challenge that it offers those crazy enough to try it. While many start, only "the Studs" complete it. I consider myself one of those studs (LOL). HOOAAA!!

After 7 days and 480+ miles of cycling, as part of RAGBRAI, and 7 days of vacationing in Cabo San Lucas, I'm back to my normal days of cycling, training the dogs, watching my food intake, and loving life. Looking forward to my 9th "Hotter than Hell 10" bike ride in 2 weeks. HOOAAA!!

I'm Back

Sunday, August 10, 2014

It's been a while since my last post. Boy, hit's been a very busy and super enjoyable time. First odd, I did RAGBRAI and met up with some friends and made some new ones along the way. After 7 days of cycling, I did 480+ miles. Day number 6 was the toughest ride OI had ever done. It was pouring down rain during the first 50 miles , with wind and hills added in. Saw many folks SAG in, but I was very determined not to allow the conditions to have me give in. After the ride, I visited family and an old friend that I had not seen for over 20 years. God, it was good to see him and his beautiful bride. Just two days after getting home, we took off for Cabo San Lucas where we enjoyed the sun, the beaches, the food, and the people. Cabo was sort of a reward for my wonderful Cuchi, who took care of all while I was doing RAGBRAI. She and our son mentioned that it was their best vacation ever. So, overall, myself and my family have had a busy, but wonderful time. Now, I'm back and have 2 weeks to get it together and take off for the "Hotter than Hell 100" bike ride at the end of August. HOOAAA!!
