I am Celeste Callahan -- from Denver, Colorado. At age 53 this is my 1st ultra experience on a bike, and I am anxious -- as in anxiety -- to see what the miles will do to this 5'1" frame. I will be pushing my body as far as it has been pushed and I'll let you know in a week if I still recognize myself.

June 2: Bloomington

Highlight -- Royal reception from Chamber of Commerce in Pontiac and official city gift: a 12 year old on his new blue would give us a drive by of their beautiful court house -- only a few miles out of our way!
