IT'S TIME TO FIND OUT IF I'M FAST ENOUGH FOR LEADVILLE. I mean, I think I'm fast enough, but they don't. Why would they? They don't follow me around, they don't know the work I've put in. But, I do.
Today I realized, it's time. It happened on Harding. I put down my fastest time this year, and finished it off very strong vs limping in. I knew right then, it's as good as it's gonna get and I oughta just get it done.
Change of plans.
I'm going to go back to Tahoe next weekend vs doing the stage race qualifier at the end of the month. It'll be my 3rd time racing that course.
My first Tahoe race was terrible. I cramped so hard I fell over and couldn't get back on my bike. The second time was magical... I just looked at my splits from that day: 2:26 on the first lap, 2:27 on the second lap.
I'm banking on magical again... then on to Leadville.
... felt so confident I ate the last donut...
... hope I'm right.
