  9. Mike at aid station 2, where the medical team told him that the laceration from his crash was probably deep enough for stitches and that we should drop from the 100 mile to the 60 mile route. we celebrated with a beer. i got a full view of his crash riding behind him at 20 mph and said out loud "collarbone!" he's lucky he didn't break it.

  21. the medical team at the finish looked at Mike's leg and told him he could skip stitches. as hey cleaned him up, i almost passed out (forgot to fill my bottles and rode the last 20 on only about 1 bottle). the medical team insisted they check me out (i was fine), but it all made for a dramatic ending. so we jumped in the lake to rinse off.
