More on Marion
It has taken several days for me to recover from the Marion ride. I figured that I burned in excess of 3500 calories during the trip. That was like burning a day of my life!
Also, I'll record here that I averaged 20 mph for those 74 miles. The guy who finished the Assault of Mount Mitchell averaged 20 mph for the entire 103 miles - including the climbs! For me next year? Don't think so...
Due to schedule, rain, and just being plumb tuckered out, I haven't been on the bike since Monday. I'll get back on tonight and get at it again. The old body is starting to miss it.
