The 2010 MFer ("Mostly Flat") 300 mile ride

On Saturday, June 19th, I completed the 3rd annual MFer, a one-day, ultra-distance bike ride through southern Illinois. This year we rode 300 miles in about 22 hours from Columbia, IL to Cairo, IL and back. Finishing the 300 mile route with me were two other riders: Colin Peeler (who completed the 250 mile route last year) and Stephanie McCreary.

Erin Wahl, Vanessa McKenzie, Dennis Regelsperger, Annette Koob and Brent Newman finished the 200 mile route this year - which ran from Columbia down to Grand Tower and back.

Ironman 70.3 Kansas

Completed Ironman 70.3 Kansas this past weekend. Weather was great - I, however, just wasn't feeling it. About 20 minutes slower than last year. Ouch.
