i.e. spending afternoons on his couch, eating all his steak and ruining his life (read: dropping him on every hill climb & then blogging about it later on his personal blog space).
I warned you about the references.
We (the 'Zilla & I) just registered for LOTOJA 2011. It will be his first go and my second. We won't know if we have a spot (about 4000 cyclists want to ride it each year, only @ 1100 are allowed to) until May 3rd, so until then we've been fueling our potential LOTOJA dreams by reading the experiences of other riders that have been posted on their various blogs. I've been entertained and inspired. Especially by those riders whose experience seemed so similar to mine. So (per agreement with my XXL cycling partner/web enabler) I decided to dig up my LOTOJA write-up from 2010. It's long (warned you about that too). So I broke it down in chapters and will post them individually. I/We welcome comments and or critiques unless you are a copyright lawyer come to collect royalties on images borrowed from google images. In that case your beef is with Rodney (his blog) and those Stanford mathematicians that started Google in the first place.
Will talk/blog soon,
