Super Century Update
As the Super Century draws closer and closer (it’s this Sunday!), I’m realizing how awful this idea truly is. When I wrote the first post about the Super Century, I really thought everyone would call us stupid and try to talk us out of it. While we had a handful of people do that, we had way more support than I ever dreamed we would have. Not only did we get support, we actually had a lot of people interested in joining us. I guess misery really does love company, huh?
So far we have several Missourians, Kansans, Illini, Iowans, a Wisconsanite, a Pennsylvannian, and a New Yorker participating in the Super Century by either riding a metric century (62 miles) on a trainer or outside. On top of that, we have a handful of
nutjobs brave souls that are doing stupid amazing challenges in lieu of the Super Century… 31 miles on a treadmill (that’s even worse that 62 on a trainer), 150 pullups (a LOT harder than it sounds), and 1,000 (or is it 10,000?) “proper form” air squats (also a LOT harder than it sounds).
Since there are so many states participating, the state with the most participants will win the State Super Century Challenge (SSCC), so be sure you drop us a line to let us know you participated. When this thing goes worldwide, we’ll have to make t-shirts or something and make a trophy for the Super Century World Championship. Until then, though, you’ll have to settle for bragging rights until next year’s challenge.
There’s still time to
crap your spleen into your chamois join in on the “fun.” If you’re in MO or crazy enough to make the drive (Kage?), we’ll be getting together in a basement somewhere (Aaron, does your offer still stand?) at 6:00 AM. I’m still trying to hunt down a trainer for Adam, so if you have a spare, let me know.
The only thing left to do is pick out what we’re going to watch during this ride. Maybe some old “ALF” re-runs? “Driving Miss Daisy” perhaps? It’s always inspiring. I think my number one pick is the under-rated “From Justin to Kelly.” Do you have any suggestions for us?
