October 22, 2019 - Started my morning with Mud Pumpkin Spice, then powered through the 3 hours on Custom Blend.
Sunny day for a gravel adventure, after all do we really call them races??? After months of great training with Nocturne, Mud and my Custom Blend I was ready for today. First hour was a cruise at 18 mph plus average. Well over anything I had ever achieved on gravel. Then it happened, the BIG one! A nondescript limestone chunk attacked my front wheel. Or maybe I failed to see and ran over it. Anyhoo my first thought after impact was "wow, that's lucky". But 200 meters later my front was flat. I rolled to a stop and set about the repair. Got rolling and somehow missed a turn, after wandering around to track back I was on course. My Custom Blend kept me hydrated and energized throughout my 3:24 event. Largest field this year of 221 entrants and I finished 118 with my loss of 20 minutes for flat and off course. Good power and steady HR, my TSS was 222. Garmin claims 3 day recovery. Probably not thanks to Infinit!
