Looking forward to your story. The photos were great.
It will be interesting to see what folks who did the end to end last year say about this route: it sure sounds knarlier than last year's course reports! Well done, ladies!
I think it was. As people are posting their gravel bike setups with 40/42s I wince a little. But maybe there are some riders that can do that and it’s a level I just can’t comprehend.
Also felt good to empty the tank a little.
Wow, what a tough, incredible ride! Thanks for the report. :)
It was a great experience to have for sure. I went through again and updated some things.
I can't emphasize enough how much I gleaned from Mari. What I see that I need to develop in team dynamics is the delicate balance of checking in in tandem with moving the group forward, distributing the effort across teammates (I think I could have handlled more, but didn't offer until the last bit), and having more confidence in my ability, which would feed the first 2 listed.
Funny, these are the exact same things I struggle with as a leader in general. I think I struggle more in my confidence as an athlete than I do as a CEO in a social work environment, but can see early in my career where the parallels are.
"Everywhere you go, you take yourself." :)
monster ride and couldn't have found better "teammates" to crush it with!! great job!!
Thanks! No kidding! Great adventure!
Interesting insights, W4J. AR reflects life in so many ways. And it also changes life.
