This is what I'd trained for, anticipated, and dreamt of. The only sound was knobby tires over fine gravel. Pedaling this first dirt road in the brisk morning air was like a rolling group meditation.
My First LT100: When the Start is the Win

Race Day is Here!
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.)

GRUSK TALL Had it All!
Some days are almost heaven. Often, I only notice in recollection. But this time, I felt it while it was happening.
