This has been one crazy week! I think the most relaxing part of it might be pedaling the LT100. Or not! There will be plenty of time for stories of moody turbo boosts, hitchhikers, and emotional curveballs, but it's almost time for me to hit the starting line. There were many times throughout this journey that I wondered if I'd get there, and even though it's still 45 minutes away, I think it's safe to say I will (or have by the time you read this.)
If you'd like to follow along with my ride, please visit the link below and type in my name or amazing bib number: 2222.
I am so grateful to my friends and family who have supported me through this journey. There has been a lot of sacrifice, and I believe that it's been worth it no matter what happens today.
Thank you to my excellent crew, Ed, Stro, Cass, and Chrissy, who helped pull me through unexpected pre-race challenges. I can't wait to see them all out there at the aid stations, along with my brother and nieces, and nephews!
See you at the finish line! TCT!
