Yes. But we've agreed to ride our own ride. So if I keep up we'll ride together, if not I'm on my own. 

If he isn't going too fast you can draft him and save over 20% of your energy but if he is going faster than you like you are better off to stay at your own speed and finish whenever you do. If I was your hubby I would ride your pace and have you draft me but either way you are going to do fine.

He did that with me on the metric. We are driving to Maryland so he can ride this with his brother. I'm ok with it. The cap on the ride is like 8k people, so hopefully I'll find some packs to ride with.

Out of 8000.... You might find one or 2 doing your pace.

get used to it.  Unless you are part of the Kzoo Kool Kidz Klub, you get nothing over a 5, unless he has been day drinking.

I agree totes, 100%. My parodies, which objectively are in the 9.5 to 9.9 range, routinely get the KZOO discount into the 3's. He grades the ladies a full point higher.

I see Airin has all the fuel she will need for her century.

I taped gels to the top tube of my bike for the IM.  I had a peanut butter sandwich coming out of t1.  It tasted like Ohio river water.  Everything I ate or drank for the first 40 miles tasted like Ohio river water.

My back is slowly getting better so I'm eager to get back on the bike. This weekend I'm going to adjust my fit and raise the bars a bit. I may have to...to..to....FLIP THE STEM UP! 

:(:(

I have a pretty aggressive bar to saddle drop.

A buddy of mine gives me free BG fits.  Last year he flipped the stem.  I protested a little but my back is a lot more tolerant of the new position.  He did confiscate my roadie man card though. :(
