Chasing 17:25

Posted by on May 15, 2008 in Moab | 3 Comments

In 2006 I rode from Moab to Fruita in 17 hours and 25 minutes. Saturday I will repeat the feat. Or at least I will attempt to repeat it. And while I don’t think my fitness is quite where it was in May of ’06, I do think I am a smarter rider. Which means I feel good about the prospect of besting that 17:25.

There are always variables. There will be unexpected challenges. But I feel good about the things I can control. My pace, my nutrition, my attitude. As long as those things are in line with where I want them to be, I should have a blast. Regardless of how long it takes me to finish. But slipping in under that 17:25 will be sweet, sweet icing on the cake.

So here’s to pushing limits, mashing pedals, and crossing bridges.

    Have fun out there Adam!

    Maybe this is will be the subject of your article entry. Why not write a new piece on an old (and new) topic, KTR? It has meant a lot to you on so many levels, the potential is limitless. Just like your own 😉
