A full and detailed post regarding the race report for trans iowa is soon to come. Yesterday the car had a flat tire and today the fridge stopped working, but you know what? I'll take it after all the good luck I had this weekend. What a great race and fun time. I ended up finishing 6th overall 3rd open male. I rode with some insanely tough riders, had perfect weather, and no mechanical issues.
I packed a bunch of stuff with me that I didn't even use, in fact most of it I forgot I had. At night I got so cold and hungry not realizing until today when I unpacked my camel pack that I had handwarmers and cliff bars stuffed inside. If I only knew...
I will draw from those memories for years. There were times while training for this event that I wanted to drop out even before the race started, but once I was in the race quitting never once crossed my mind. No matter how bad it hurt or how slow I was going, I knew I was going to finish or die trying. I didn't care if I finished last as long as I finished.
To end up placing so well and being competitive was a great bonus!
More to come,
