First, the was no sunshine at the start of this year's Roswell GA 100 Miles to Nowhere.

Third, though I say it every time, I think that I overcommitted in the weeks before this event. The Beast of the East was on May 20. The following weekend was my sister's wedding. And the next weekend, the Tri-the-Y kids triathlon in Athens on Saturday with 100 MTN on Sunday. Whew! While I took the kids to Athens for the race, Doug smoked boston butts on the grill. Each set of butts (they fit on the grill 2 at a time) took 12 hrs to cook, with checking and intervention every 2 hours.

GU Electrolyte Brew to 1/4 cups to whole cups, but finally figured it out (with a little help from Doug) so that my GU Electrolyte brew tasted right. Brew on the right, water on the left.
You can see Doug's chillinator in the background. After last year's heat, Doug upgraded from the hose chair and built a bike-through shower to keep us cool. He was not interested in anyone falling out in the driveway. The chillinator was fabulous, especially in between the later laps when the day heated up. We will have to think of a way to make a permanent outdoor shower at our house! Because there was a cop following us on at least three of our ten loops, I think someone made a complaint about this. The chillinator does look a bit like a gallows.
