In one week I start the Arizona Trail Race. I can't believe how quickly it came. It feels like I just dreamed up this idea yesterday and have been working on it for 23 years at the same time.
Tomorrow I will take the train to Belen, New Mexico to start a few day bike ride to warm up the legs and get used to desert riding again. It will be nice to ride for a bit before the racing actually starts!
I feel like I am in a good mental space and physically very ready. These races take any control that you feel like you have a toss it aside. The races don't test who is the fastest biker but who can roll with the punches the best. No one will have an issue free race and the winner is the one who handled them the best and consistently performing despite the weather and other circumstances. I will be that person for the 2019 Arizona Trail Race.
When the race starts on the 18th I will be tracked online along with 74 other riders! I will post the link all over the website for you to follow along!
Currently, I am relaxing in Placitas, New Mexico after driving from Michigan yesterday. The drive was long and the wind made the mpg take a dive. I don't know what I would have done if it wasn't for those people who have become sponsors! The sponsor page will be live through August for all three races! Any help is greatly appreciated!
The trail will be hard but the experience is so worth it!
