Well it has been a long time since I last posted in here so I thought I would do a quick catch up blog and then become more regular at posting in the future hopefully!
I bailed on the TransIowa due to good wisdom (first time for everything in life I guess). The weather was horrible and they called it after 145 miles do to safety issues. I plan on doing this ride at some point in the future, but this year just did not seem to work out and I was glad for it when I read all the reports!
I finished the BPAC 6 Hour Ultra Event - Ran 32.5 miles in just over 6 hours so I got credit for 31.5 miles. Felt great, met a lot of great people, and will definitely do more endurance events like that in the future!
Todd, Jeff, and I finished The Buffalo Marathon. Jeff was the fastest in around 3:51, I came in at 4:00:21, and Todd was at 4:10. Jeff smoked it and that was awesome. I had some problems around mile 21 and cramped up on the way in. Todd did as well. I will work on nutrition in the future and try to increase salt intake on days like this!
My next plan is Ride for Roswell June 28th - 62.5 miles - Finger Lakes 50K July 5th.
I am currently commuting to work on the Raliegh One Way as many days as the weather allows. It has been quite challenging especially the way home - headwind and uphill!
I promise to be more regular with my posts from here on out.
Also - Good luck to the Tour Divide and Great Divide Racers out there in the west right now!
