The drive out was for the most part, without any drama although Tim did freak me out when we stopped at a rest stop in Louisana and pulled a pistol out from under the seat. He walked into the facilities carrying it in his pocket. Didn't realize that that part of Louisana was that "sketchy"! We did manage to arrive at Sebring safely.

The race itself went well enough. I had signed up for the 24 hours and Tim and Dan Rocco were doing the 12. After they finished their stint they became my support crew. After 15 hours I decided I had enough (again not having been able to train as much as I would have liked)! I wound up with 174 miles, plus an additional ten or so due to missing a turn and getting lost. I did take 1st place though in the Men's 70+ Standard bike non-drafting category.
