Hello everyone and thank you for checking in on my blog. I am tired and not really in the mood for a long race report so I’ll be brief. I completed my third Everest Challenge on Sunday 9/26/10. I suffered in the heat. On both days I had great climbs on climb #1 and climb #2 but then the heat would be there for climb #3. It was not my worst showing but I should have done much better. I expected to do much better.
Today is Monday 9/27/10 and I am in full recovery mode as I am racing the Furnace Creek 508 in less than a week. Most of you think I’m crazy for doing Everest Challenge and the Furnace Creek 508 in a week’s time. Well I probably am but…I just want to test my limits. People ask me why I do ultras…it’s because I want to test the limits of human endurance…my limits. I’m not interested in placing high. I’m interested in finding out where is my low. Where is the bottom? Where is the point where I say “Man this is it …you’re broken.”
Felt F2 with Di2, SRM Dura-Ace 7900 Wireless Power Meter Crankset 53/39, Cassette 11-28, Zipp Zed Tech 2, PRO Turnix Saddle and Carbon Vibe Stem.
My unofficial time is 15:23. Below are the elevation charts. When the official results are posted I’ll post a race report. I am curious to see how many DNF’s and No Shows on day two. Thank you for tuning in.
I want to thank Infinit Nutrition for supporting me in my Epic Adventures. Please look into customizable nutrition to help you perform better. I used Infinit Nutrition on Everest Challenge and will use it on the Furnace Creek 508!
