Stage 5 65km - The Wheels have come off the A-Train

Nothing happened today unless you count me riding my bike like a little boy, wrecking several times, pushing my bike and crying as something happening.

Check in before the start of the stage 5 - the pain cave


Oblivious to the pain that awaits

The pros making it look easy

Trying to emulate...not sure it's working.

Today I spent the better part of the almost 5 hours of riding in the pain cave. Every once in awhile I would poke me head out and enjoy a few brief moments of riding, but for the most part I laid in the fetal position, sucking my thumb.


It was one of the hardest days I have ever had on the bike. I guess the previous days hammerfest destroyed me. Not only had my wheels come off, but this sucker was on blocks with no engine either.


Stage 5 65km - 4:55:46 36th place

Heading to another ferry - Reservoir Dogs style with Grande Americano's (in a public display of humiliation for my riding I wasn't allowed to walk with the others)

If you administer the weight loss drug Phentermine in accordance with the instructions of the doctor and altogether in your phentermine regimen, if you follow the necessary Phentermine precautions, the medicine would surely yield results for you. Comprehensive details on Phentermine dosage, Phentermine mechanism and other relevant information are available at http://www.pill-care.com/phentermine.html .
