El Tour ~ Personal Triumph
Getting ready for yesterday's El Tour de Tucson, here is my friend Mark just minutes before the race started. This was his 2nd El Tour and he trimmed a whopping 1.5 hours from his time last year! WOW! In spite of some stretches with 30 mph gusting winds he averaged 15.88 for the 109 miles. He said in an email to me, "This was the greatest athletic achievement of my life." Fantastic! Congratulations. Now go eat something!
