Courage Classic 2012

I have a goal to ride 10 centuries in my life. Originally I was planning on doing them in 10 consecutive years, but that’s not looking good since my first and last century was in 2009. Despite having not done another century, I still did a ride this past weekend that I hold on the same level. Here are the numbers:

3 days
~140 miles
~10,000 feet ascended
minimum altitude > 9,000 feet 

It was certainly one of the coolest things I’ve done, and I’m really glad I got to be a part of it. I just wish I hadn’t fallen in a 5 mph meeting with a curb in front of 2 national champions. Lame.

If you zoom in really close between miles 19 and 20, you’ll see a little jog in the line. Not coincidentally, it’s right next to a ditch. It was dry before I got to it.
