BACK TO THE CENTURIES!!!

Day 34: After enjoying the 80 – 90 mile rides through Nebraska we set out today at 6 am to ride a century (100 miles), from Des Moines to Iowa City. We are getting much stronger as a team. Our overall average speed is increasing and our mapping is also improving. We are still fighting off some minor wear and tear on our bodies but are still riding strong. Today we rode 100 miles in five hours and 15 minutes with only two stops. We burned 7,000 calories today!!!!! But made up for it at The Olive Garden where we got $20 off our meal. After dinner we somberly strolled into our great hotel, the Comfort Suites. The team wants to give a special thanks to Jason Richardson a recent graduate of APU (Business Marketing Major). Jason was apart of the sales class that helped us with our project. He has gone above and beyond what was expected in class. Almost all the hotels we are staying at are because of his great work. He is actually still working closely with us on hotels and more. He would be a great asset to any company and we are thankful to have him continuously work with us. Thanks Jason! Once we walked into the Comfort Suites we were met with a great surprise Thank You also to Marc and Clay for their casting in the video…. Enjoy the video y'all.
