Centenarian Completes Metric Century, Sets Record on Velodrome, 300 Laps, 14.4 Miles per Hour Average

Well just in case we needed to be inspired (or depressed?), a guy over 100 years old skated his age in km at a velodrome in Lyon, France in just over four hours and seventeen minutes. This is good stuff! This is good news for a rainy afternoon with no outdoor skating likely on this day, with a2a.net 87 miles of skating less than 9 days away. I'll be slower than the oldest people out there, I'm sure! Some of those dudes are fast! But I am looking forward to it. My Forerunner 305, however, is showing signs of not wanting to be awake that long at one stretch. A fix, hopefully, is on next week's agenda.
