We’re Half Way – Are you?

That’s right – the 12th edition of Le Tour de Couch Potato is half way done. You should be at least 50 miles into your pedaling. We have 12 potatoes who blew past that half-way point and made it official today.

Green Eggs & Yam crossed the century mark today with 143.6 miles. Buck-A-Spud is also finished with 121.6 miles. The Spudster has another magnet with 121 miles. Three potatoes made it to the finish line with 115 miles: Rico Suave Potato, Pro Potato and You Say Hurtado, I Say Potato. Jungle Spud has 106 miles and reports he’s headed back to the couch. Campbell’s Soup Potato earned her first magnet with 104.8 miles and Chilli Cheese Fries finished up with 103.9 miles. Just touching the finish line is Tati Yam with 100 miles exactly.

Two of our three potatoes that have finished every tour crossed the finish line today. Duchess Potato is over the line with 105.4 miles and your truly, Madam Tuber, is done with 104.4 miles. We’ll see if Bubba Spud can make it as well.

We blew past 15,000 miles today with 206 pedaling potatoes, 55 of them official! Bring on the magnets.

Potato Happenings:

Fauling for a Spud was on the Peloton but saw a deer in the yard so was able to imagine being outside.

Tot Louie (with the accent in honor of the boys in France) is loving the early AM rides. Also outside and stopping for duck crossing is Tri Potato. Swisher Sweets Potato was out with the deer – several of them – and the biker chicks (lots of wildlife, it seems).

Spudly Beach Bum took a ride with her niece – or was it a ride for the margarita and banging shrimp? I bet the niece was just a good excuse.
