I want to write a huge blog post about the finish of RAAM, with pictures and all, but that will have to come this week for a few reasons. One, I'm exhausted right now and don't feel like it. Two, we're trying to get things packed up to leave tomorrow. And three, because we're leaving in an hour to go see TT2 at the finish.
I'm sure most of you have looked at the results by now, but TT1 won the 8 man division of Race Across America in 5 days, 9 hours and 5 minutes. They set a new course record for the finish time of the race and the speed in which they completed it (they averaged 23.41mph for the race). The finish was awesome, even though it was REALLY late - they crossed around 3:00am on Friday morning. I was super thrilled to see all the guys and have had a great time getting to know them and their families this weekend.
Tom's pretty exhausted. We've been told that the fatigue will really hit around Tuesday, but he felt it a lot today. he's struggling a bit with his blood sugars, simply because his body is kind of in freak out mode a little without being on the bike. It's nice to be around other guys that have the same struggles of highs and lows as Tom. They just get him and their families get what I deal with! :)
Thanks again for all of your support. Again, I'll post more pictures and whatnot sometime this coming week. We're driving home tomorrow, making a pit stop in Gettysburg (Tom rode through it Thursday night and wants to go back) and then I'm sure this coming week is going to be a bit hectic getting caught up.
