Day 3: Russellville, AL to Columbus, MS

Wrapping up another brilliant day with Pablove 2011. The morning in Alabama started out foggy and quite cool. Very much like what I would imagine riding fall classics in Europe would be like. Today was our longest day yet at 100 miles and around 3000 feet of total climbing.

Every one of those miles ridden and feet climbed was in honor of my mom today. She was diagnosed with breast cancer back in the summer 2000 and after surgery and a very aggressive regimen of chemotherapy and radiation treatment, I’m so happy that she is still with us. Today is her birthday, and I just wanted to say happy birthday and I love you, mom. You are an inspiration to our family and I am so thankful for your life.

Tomorrow brings another 100 miles to my woefully undertrained legs. So night night for now!
