42 miles into the inagural Pelotonia fundraising tour! It's lunchtime at Amanda Clearcreek High School. Good food, perfect weather, no Lance sighting yet! We have about 58 miles left to Athens and the hills have just begun. Our average is right around 18-19 mph (not bad for so little training), but that will surely drop as we head further south. Right now it's really important to refuel - high caloric-density foods with a good balance of carbs and protein, and plenty of fluids with electrolytes to replace those lost to sweating. On the menu today: wraps, donut holes, Gatorade, and Myoplex (which isn't bad for a protein shake)! Don't forget that you can still donate at!
