Sunday was the third century of the year for me, as Chis P. Jeremy, Erik and I are trying for 100 miles on the bike in a day in each month of the year. It reached the low 60s and was sunny throughout the day. I was not sure how my legs would react based on Saturdays hike, but I turned out ok. We rode out to Golden near the Coors brewery again and headed south to C470 out to the Cherry Creek trail and then back up to Westminster. I was pretty tired by the halfway point. I refueled at a gas station by eating two king size butterfingers. It seemed to work for a while, but by mile 80 I was dragging again, so we stopped at the REI Starbucks, and this did the trick. We all cracked 100 miles a block or so from Chris's house, then Jeremy initiated the final attack sprint! Pizza, cookies, and recovery beers greeted us upon arrival!
