Miles 0 through 23: Cool, calm, overcast, pleasant. We pass the cross-country half-way mark.
Miles 24 through 45: Headwinds start; extremely difficult going 7 mph. Euphoric but brief tailwind for 0.2 miles as we make a hard-right into the lunch stop.
Miles 46 through 64: Headwinds continue. We pass a windmill farm — so, these winds must go on all the time.
Mile 65: Oasis for ice cream at the Frosty Freeze in the town of Highmore. Chocolate and banana cyclone…mmmmm…
Miles 66 through 88: Headwinds continue until we arrive, spent, in Miller.
