The Ironman bike ride has a 30, 62, and 100 mile course. We had been joking about the 100, but wisely chose the 62. The weather was above average for the ironman (that is, awful). It rained a lot, and there was always a strong headwind no matter which direction we were riding.

62mi = 99.78km was really 100K.

The "Tour de Tonka".

Mike, Zach, and I all started off together at 7:30am on a grey but respectable summer morning. Mike made a lucky wrong turn at the decision point between the 33 mile course and the 65 mile course and finished well ahead of the worst weather.

As the day went on, the rain got heavier and the wind picked up. At 60 miles Zach and I were cold and wet and were told that the support crews and traffic police were being pulled from the course. We were the last ones on the route, so we gave up and took the sag wagon the last five miles.

Still, 60 miles... Not bad.
