Wow this blog is in serious need of an update!
Lets go way back!
This saw a fun race when me, Jp, and Matt competed in a 3 man team at the 12hrs of Temecula. Which saw us take 6th in very compedative class!
After a small break to get married 🙂 It was back to training.
Next up the San Deigo Multi Park Marathon (50 miles)
Was a great race I learned a ton about feeding…. I was cramping so bad at the end of the race I vowed never to screw up my Electrolyte balance again!
I came in 2nd in CAT 2 and 11th overall! So stoked as my training was really coming around!
Now it was a couple weeks later and I learned so much at the Multi park race I was ready to put it to use at the Socal Epic 50 miler! I learned about pace and I learned about feeding and it was time to use that to try and really win!
I set out pretty fast but held back and let 1 CAT 2 rider go and at ~mile 18 I caught and passed him and never saw him again. I ate and fueled well even in the 90deg heat no cramps! I rode this race to profection! my training had paid forward and I WON cat 2 and came in 12th overall in a much deeper field (behind Tinker, Ben Bostrom, Guy Sutton)
Well here I am 10 days away from my A 2010 race the 12hrs of Temecula solo race! I feel strong, fit, experienced, and ready to crush it! My goal isn’t to place, to win, or beat others as much as this is a race again myslef. Its going to be 75% mental. Can I ride my bike fast for 12hrs… can I fuel right and keep my head in the game for that long? My goal in my head is 10 laps…. if I can toss down 10 laps (which will be roughly 110 miles and 12,000′ of climbing) I’ll feel like I couldn’t have raced any better in 2010!
