It’s Quite Literally a Photo Finish! (2018 Tram Road Challenge Race Recap)

October 28, 2018

Although I didn’t have a specific time goal for the Tram Road Challenge race in Palm Springs, I started the race thinking that it would be great to finish in under an hour. And I made it… in the nick of time!

The results, which I saw a little later, showed my name with a time of 59:59.1 – 9/10ths of a second faster than my goal. It was a fantastic way to end an awfully difficult morning. Read the rest of this entry »

October 25, 2015

SURPRISE! It’s a Race Recap! Ten days ago, I signed up for a race that happened on Saturday. I never mentioned it here. Partly because I didn’t post at all last week (life got in the way), and partly because I didn’t know what to say… it just kinda sorta scared me shitless. Check out the venue, though: how gorgeous is this?

That’s actually where the race ended. The finish line was right in front of that building. And if you’re guessing that a race in the mountains could be difficult… you’re absolutely right. It was one of the toughest things I’ve ever done. Read the rest of this entry »
