UPDATE 4: 0645hrs NLT
John is on the homestretch now! Heading towards Norris Arm, he'll be crossing over that trestle at Bishop's Falls before we know it!
It's very bad timing for me, as I'm off to a little 72km race of my own and have to leave shortly. Argh. Would love to see him in, but will have to settle for seeing him after the race.
That's how ultra cycling is, though, whether it's an organized race or your own adventure - it's always pretty anti-climactic at the finish. No crowds cheering for you, no fancy celebrations or medals. Just the pure satisfaction that you set a goal and you pushed yourself beyond your limits to achieve something that you weren't quite sure you could even do when you started out.
So proud of you John!! Cathie's cooking and baking are in your near future and there's a Crafty Radler waiting for you in the fridge! 😄
