Yes, that says 112.2 miles. Even my tri club friends are questioning my sanity with 62 days to go until Mont-Tremblant. Short answer is, I needed to know I could do it before the Ironman race.
We started on a club ride with 8 of us and a pretty good pace. Each lead out held a respectable 22-23 mph. We did that for a few hours and people slowly dropped off and headed home. The last guy gave up at 76 miles. I told him I was going to try for 100, but hey if you go 100 you may as well go 112.
I had already done a marathon and swam 2.4 miles last year so those were mentally in the bag, but I had never done a 112 mile ride. So mentally that one is in the bag as well.
Now I just need to do all 3 in one day!
Oh, and I got these for father's day gifts as well.
Best Fathers Day EVER!
