The Leadville Chronicles: Talkin' Big
One hundred and seventy-six days until I meet my doom. Or crush the Leadville Trail 100.
In case you missed yesterday's BREAKING NEWS
In the Fat Cyclist spirit I'm going to share a bit of personal, embarrassing, information with all of you, my faithful, and not-so-, Dear Readers.
As of yesterday morning I tip the scales at a whopping 196 pounds. By August 11 I will be down 21 pounds to a mean 175. By August 11 I will be comfortable spurring The One to lengths exceeding 100 miles in a single push. By August 11 I will have crafted or purchased the core strength I have always dreamed of having. By August 11 my sub-nine hour finish will be assured.
Oh, Dear Readers, I may not be blogging about all that I will be doing over the next few months. Hopefully I will be so busy shoving my pedals round and round that I won't have time for such silliness. I may have to do an Autumn Retrospective of the entire 2012 year.
If you don't hear from me, be assured that I will be doing many mountain/prairie bike commutes, crimes/rides of opportunity, and weeping from exhaustion after crushing my crank for miles and miles and miles and miles and miles.
