Wednesday June 13

I just received the latest report on Jeff. He's only a few miles out of TS 16 Pagosa Springs, CO. and the weather is good.

As I said before, he called last night and he seemed fine....sounded great, but Heather said after that he wasn't feeling very well and had no appetite. They were waiting out a thunderstorm with seroiusly close lightening and 40 mph headwinds. After it passed, he pedaled on to TS 15 Durango, CO. The descent into Durango was long and with the temperature being only 42 degrees, he got pretty cold. In Durango he took about 4 hours off the bike to rest......3 hours of that was spent sleeping.

This morning Heather reports that he's feeling better and has his appetite back. She said as they rode by a restaurant, he called out to them that he bet they had some sort of breakfast sandwiches in there.

I also understand his brother, Mike, is going to meet him in Wolf Creek Pass (CO)
and is going to do a story about the race (and I assume his brother) for the Estes Park newspaper.

Well, I guess that's it for now. I'll let you know as soon as I hear more.

Keep it up, Jeff. Glad to hear you're doing so well (thanks, Jeff's mom!)

I bet Hadley was having sympathy pains during your thunderstorm -- We actually had one here on Tuesday too.
