We left Lanette and headed for Montegomery today. 84 long miles. Somehow I managed to not be last. Not only was I not last, I rocked it all day. I managed to maintain a 18 mph average minus uphills. I managed to not have any real down moments even with all the hills. On the downhills I managed to top out at 32.4 mph. That is quite fast for a heavy bike. I am actually quite proud of myself. I feel like I have managed to get used to the heat and my abilities are far better than I imagined.
We had a lovely BBQ in Vaghn Park tonight. One of the other riders picked up a Portabella Mushroom for me to BBQ. The funny thing about the south is, they really do not understand being a vegetarian, but they are very genuinely concerned about how well I liked the way they prepared things. The shroom was perfect. If only I could get more greens served. I am so craving seaweed, Kale and arugula.
