December 11, 2008: Comments, Eric Fergusson:
It was a different game plan this time. No photos, no stopping really, push through at a steady tempo. No wrong turns this time either. It's a strange sort of triumph when you need to pull out all the stops to achieve a sub 10 hour time. Did it just barely 9:51.
It was a particularly beautiful morning with the dusting of snow on the North Shore peaks. The River Road section was no trouble at all yesterday. This may have been because I was there a little earlier.
And the 7-11 trail was a lot easier, mainly because there was daylight all the way through, and also I had made all my wrong turns the first time. The key is really to follow the commuter cyclists - they know where they are going.
