I am a little overdue for posting how my Leadville trip ended up, but I have been recovering from such a huge event AND wanted to make sure I put together a really good recap of my ride and my results.
Before I go to far I want to say THANK YOU SO MUCH to all who sent me messages and well wishes for my ride. I was so humbled and grateful for the kind words and encouragement. It has really meant a ton to me – thank you! 🙂
Rather than write out the entire story, I recorded a video!
For those of you who don’t really want to watch the whole video but are curious about my results, I felt great, the ride was absolutely awesome… but I broke a chain toward the beginning of the ride. It ended up costing me about 45 min. to get to the point where I could ride hard again so I missed my 9 hour goal by 9 minutes! ARGH!
Here’s the whole story of the chain as well as some other adventures that happened along the way (such as a PRO riding over my helmet…yes, you read that right):
