When You are Truly There

As noted last week, I have been feeling “off” since my race. But, if I am being honest, I have felt a shifting in my body and mind for a few years.  Recently, I had an important realization while out on a ride. In high school we would’ve called this one of those long...

Is It Worth It?

I have now had a couple more weeks to digest and reflect on my race in Texas. More time to consider the result after the growing anticipation and expectations of the goal for years.  More time to feel through the disappointment, consider the lessons learned, and...

The Many Flavors of Hard
