I have to drive back over to Leadville to get my belt buckle this morning, so this has to be short. I’ve never heard of an awards presentation at 7:30 am, the day after the race. Crazy. We’re going to take our road bikes and do a ride around the town after. Vincent says the bike path around Leadville is pretty interesting, going by a lot of old mines, etc.
Yesterday didn’t go as I had hoped or planned. I’ll write about it tomorrow. I kept motivated, even though I had no reason to be. Finally, with about 1/2 the race left, I started cramping and that was it. I tried to control the cramping as best I could, but who knows how to do that? Certainly not me.
Anyway, I’m not so disappointed. I had no chance of ever winning the race, but felt like I had the form to finish way better than I did. Limping in at the end of a race is not something I wish on anyone.
Okay, we have to head off. This early morning stuff, especially after a real early morning race start isn’t my cup of tea.
