Nice 50-miler today. Feeling really good. Interesting visit to my (GP) doc yesterday. He was not very enthusiastic about me doing this ride. I told him it was a done deal. Then he tried to get me to wait a year. I told him that I already made up my mind. Took some convincing but finally got his blessing. He said I was "certifiable." Fortunately, when he asked, "when was the last time you rode 60 miles?", I had a good answer for him: "Sunday."
