Leadwoman – The Aftermath

We ate nasty Mexican food in Leadville for dinner.  When we finally got back in the car to drive back to Silverthorne, the emotion set it. The girls were soooooo proud that I finished.  It was very difficult to explain to them that I couldn’t continue on in the Leadwoman series because I didn’t make the 12-hour cutoff time.  They just didn’t get it.  Audrey was upset but also relieved that she...

Leadwoman – August Days Before the 100 MTB

Sometime in May or June, I started getting invited to my bestie’s 40th birthday in Florida the weekend before Leadville MTB.  I completely ignored all the invites and fun being planned because there was no way I was going.  I watched all the posts in the birthday group for months moping around that I was going to miss it.  As it got closer, it was almost like I needed to go.  I needed to get away. ...

Leadwoman – July 2019

Leadwoman – 24 Hours in the Canyon (6/1-2/19)

The first weekend of June, I loaded up the girls and we went to Palo Duro Canyon for 24 hours in the Canyon.  This was a bike race.  I had done 6-hour event 3 years ago and won.  By a pretty big margin actually.  I was not in as good of shape on trails this time around so my goal was to ride 6 hours first day and 6 hours the second day.  As the name indicates, you can ride for 24 hours straight if you...
