☀️😅🚴🏼♀️One two three
One two three
The pedal moved up
The pedal moved down
The pedal went full circle .
Sometimes when your trashed , bonking, and the garmin miles tick down at such a minscuel pace that's all that keeps you from dismounting your bike and calling it quits. .
You can't allow your mind to wander to the glory of finishing
or the hills as they get steeper and steeper...
Or the sun beaming rays as they penetrate you skin like hot burning coals...
Or still let any creeping pitiful thoughts enter your mind as you ride a entire section of 20 miles utterly alone pacing your water and still ending up 10 miles away from the next aid station feeling like a dried out shriveled up cactus. .
No you comment to yourself out loud "get your sht together". Thats what ya do because... "Winners never quit, and quitters never win". .
This post had to be great. A very very Happy B-day tobuuu.... I was wondering what would be my 200th post...but seriously this one does true justice for my double century.... Love u dear and thank you for being such a Vangan... Hope you have a great bday!!! Lots of Love!!!
Another midnight ride on the Virginia Capital Trail. Endurance sports are more mental than physical. You have to embrace those dark places in your head and be willing to push beyond your mental limitations to learn who you really are. #doublecentury#shutuplegs#virginiacapitaltrail
Shout-out to my new sponsor @seagullbags for the dope fanny. Now everyone will notice my firm tight 🍑 as I use this on training rides with the Major Taylor Project students.
