I'm not going to pick apart my race yet, and besides, I think I wrote enough in yesterdays post to cover me for a day or two.

The 'go to philly and see a show before the race' idea didn't really pan out. We made it to the suburbs of the city of brotherly love, but the lady bear got sick, so we ended up chilling in the lodgings of our gracious hosts. While I was looking forward being jostled around in a steaming mass of humanity, the rest probably did me good.

On Friday morning we left Philadelphia for State College. I only had to stop and scramble down an embankment by the side of the hi way once to pee. Go me.

We poked around town for a little, ate lunch, and visited freeze thaw (extremely cool shop. and they did a ton to help out at the race. thanks guys) then headed over to recumbent bike riders to meet my padre.

I'm not ashamed to say that I rode a trike, and I liked it.
After the trike ride we shot over to Coburn, and the madness ensued.

1 night, and 10 hours of riding later,
