2014 Marin Mountains 200k perm

Marin Mountains is the 200k installment of the SFR Adventure Series. It’s been run as a brevet for a couple of years, and it was definitely on my radar last year, but I ended up being a bit under the weather the week it rolled around and decided to pass. 1,814 more words

2014 SFR Old Caz 171k

Oh, Spoiler Alert! As you may know, Old Caz is a 300k, so yes, I DNFed. There’s still a story though. Always a story.

The Adventure Series started with the 600k in June, and is going in decreasing distance order, which has been really nice, winding down the season, heading toward finishing a ride the same day I start. 3,310 more words

This weekend I FINALLY reached a milestone I’ve been looking forward to for many, many months.

Enduring the Pain Point

Mile 250 of our 625-mile ride. Fatigue courses through my body. My skin has that beat-up feeling from multi-day endurance riding. The sun is shrouded in fog and the road keeps going up. 333 more words
