Actual Time: 7:01:32 - PR! (6:14:18 moving)

miles 1-27
spinning way too fast
charging hills, gunning flats, speed
without that concern
for 75 more miles 
to come. and yet, I ride ride.

miles 28-47
after miles i deflate
sipping silently upon
dark black coffee hot
rest and repose ready me
for the miles left ahead.

miles 47-78
rolling away now
slowed by oversteamed spinning
enjoying chirping
birds and vernal smells of the
merrimac and maudslay spring

miles 78-104
second wind blows on
me like snow eating chinooks.
miles thru exurbs
sail quickly underwheel.
gliding in - hot dog finish.
