Adventure Race 10:00:00 [5] 37.0 mi (16:13 / mi)

My first ever AR win, thanks to amazing navigation from Tom Martin of Chafing the Dream and a very strong performance from Evan.

Full race report to come soon (once I finish the damn NIAR report), but it was so fun to race up front. We were neck-and-neck with Rob, Nicki and Glen (racing as GOALS) for most of the race, thru the last TA, when we got very lucky, and they got very unlucky. It should have been a sprint to the finish but we somehow ended up an hour ahead.

Amazingly, we left at least an hour out on the course in mistakes and searching for one tough point, plus Tom was cramping starting around two hours in, so he was struggling to maintain our pace. Crazy to think we could have gone even faster.

Besides winning, I'm excited and relieved to know I'm in good shape for Fiji.

Stroudwater, easy.

Wednesday Aug 7 #

Bike 1:00:00 [5]

10-minute ramps with 15 second bursts. Definitely still don't have my legs back yet...hopefully they return for the Bitter Pill this weekend!

Trail Run 40:00 [4] 4.5 mi (8:53 / mi)

Winnick, started hard with aspirations of setting a PR but hit a wall haflway thru. Then I got home and saw our Eco patches had arrived and got enough energy back to want to go out and run another 20 miles.
