DUD SPUDS in training?

The potatoes are pedaling like crazy with only 3 days left. We’re over 20,500 miles and just added 11 more potatoes that made it official. Flower Power Potato starts us off today, finishing with 116.94 miles. Manntater and Tati Yam are neck and neck with 103.4 miles and 103.0 miles respectively.

Seafaring Spud at 102.45 miles and Wolfpack Potato at 100.5 miles were out riding past Leesburg VA with a variety of wildlife. They headed down the W&OD trail, culminating in a tour of a vintage caboose in Herndon VA…and magnets to top it all off.

Scribing Spud is over the finish line with 102.0 miles. And eeking over the line are 5 additional potatoes: PoKaeTo with 100.8 miles, Gator Bait Potato with 100.45 miles, Yam Kronen in at 100.16 miles, 2Ber Fit checking in with 100.9 miles and Potato Loco hitting exactly 100.0 miles. Potato Loco was unsure she would make it with some health concerns but she pedaled through for that magnet.

Congratulations to this large group of potatoes!

Potato Happenings:

Harley Taterson was out and about again, enjoying the Ashland Trail in Baltimore County. 50 Shades of Spud did a quick out and back…eatin’ up those miles like butter on a spud (yummy). Dre’ Tater hit the road between storms to get the last of her miles in. I think we reported her as finished previously so there may have been a mix up in miles – we’ll get it right.

Three days remain for our pedaling potatoes. We have a bunch that are less than 10 miles from the finish line. Check out Bubba Spud – she needs less than 6 miles to complete her tour and she’ll have finished every Couch Potato…hope she makes it. There are 11 others with her in the 90 – 99 mile range.

Eleven is also the number of potatoes in the 80s – under 20 miles to go. You have the finish line in your sights.

There are ten potatoes in the 70s – that means with less than 10 miles a day, you will be done.

Twelve are hanging out in the 60s – definitely realistic with the weekend coming up. A couple long rides and you have a magnet for your fridge. I think the seven potatoes in the 50s can join you.

Our other 24 potatoes that are off the couch but not quite half way done. You have a lot of pedaling ahead of you in the next three days but I don’t want to see you become DUD SPUDS…you got off the couch so find those padded shorts and tough it out.

Then there are our 37 potatoes that are still on the couch…hmmm – DUD SPUDS in training? Prove me wrong!
