Entering the Final 3rd of I4k

At this point I believe we are two thirds done with the ride. In mileage and in days we are only halfway, but I call Fort Collins 2/3. We had about 20 days before Chicago, making that the first mental hurdle to surpass. Now we had just under 20 from Chicago to the end of our rest days in Fort Collins, which I have just now dubbed the “farm hurdle.” From here on out, we have about 30 days, but its the final 30 days and 30 days of awesome mountain riding. Has it gone by fast? I couldn’t tell ya. Last I knew I was crossing the George Washington Bridge with 20 Clif Bars in my bag. I pedaled a couple times and found myself riding up to the bean with 1 clif bar in my bag. Then we left Chicago and I had 20 more clif bars. I woke up this morning and now I have 0 clif bars. Clif Bars are how I keep track of time. They also signify how tired I am. I finished my last one this morning, rode 55 miles, and now I can not move from my parents hotel room bed. That is where I am right now. I will not move until there are 20 more clif bars in my bag. At that point we will head West for more adventure. Golden Gate, Ill see ya in 20 Clif Bars!!
