Eve-ville 100 – The Final Training

I failed to mention the part about how I’d taken 10 days off of training (other than the 14er).  I called coach Steve panicking and not having the least bit of clue how to pick back up.  After 10 days off, I just picked right back up where I left off and followed the schedule he gave me.  This may only be the 2nd time in my life I’ve followed 100% what a coach said.  Except, I added one thing.  I...

Leadwoman – Eve-ville was born

                                                  The next 4 days were like an out of body experience.  We vacationed.  Instead of training, we ate poorly.  We played. We drank beer.  And wine.  We put a puzzle together.  We met foxes, deer and guinea pigs.  We watched live...

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. ...
