Since I had the Sheppard cycling jersey on a few people stopped to admire it. I even had a few people inquire about getting their own Sheppard jersey. I met up with a couple from McKinney, Texas or somewhere around there. I rode with them most of the way. They were a nice older couple and it was their first time doing the 100k.
After I passed by my house and saw my dad standing out there, I reached the 50 mile mark and I started to get really tired. The heat was starting to get to me, it was of course around 100 degrees out. I only had about 10 more miles or about an hour of riding left so of course I pushed myself to finish. I also started getting cramps and tired feet. I'm really glad that I pushed myself to finish.
At the finish line I got my picture taken then I went on my merry way home. I had to get a lot of rest because my girlfriends were taking me out that night.
