Started pulling at the start pushing through a small head wind. Felt great, and hip was responding well. Pulled back on the climbs to conserve energy, and pace myself.
Mile 28.5: Turn around. Chris and Shaun where trucking fast. I did my best to keep up and just hook on the best I could.
Mile: 47.3: Climb was good, but again slow for me. My two friends where moving fast and I knew once i got to the top I could catch up with them on the down hill.
Mile 57: Felt good, but tired. Finally made it home and celebrated with a few beers and snacks that my wife got us. Overall, great ride!
