"It's better to fail at greatness than succeed at mediocrity" - Courtney Hilton

I decided yesterday that I would do todays century non-stop and see how long it would take. So I packed 5 GU, one pound of sharp cheddar, Blue diamonds wosabie almonds into my camelback and hit the road a 8am. I rode out through Granger, Minburn, Yale on the highway. I turned onto the trail for a return trip at yale I was at 55 miles and just under 3 hours. At this point the 6 hour mark look achievable. Fast run all the way to redfield then into the headwind. Somewhere around 90 miles (walkee) my legs were just about done. I slowed down to 16 or so and finished around colby park (don't take clive greenbelt for good time). I finished at 5 hours and 56 minutes under 6 hours. I only ate half my cheese and a handful of nuts so I was very hungry when I got home.
