2 months until Leadville

Leadville 100 is 2 months away. I have goal to finish in under 9 hours. This is my first attempt to do this race and I really have no idea what to expect. Several of my friends have done this many times and only a handful have posted a sub nine. Fatty has done this race more than anyone I know. Something like 11 or 12 years in a row. He has come close to a sub nine and I think this year will be his year. I plan to ride this with him and chase him around the course.

I'm starting to realize that with only 2 months until the race, I need to start logging some longer rides on my mtb. I did the White Rim trail in one day on my SS a few months ago (108 miles) and had some serious cramping. It was a wake up call for me.

Today I got up at 7am and met Dug for a 3 hour ride on my SS around the Draper trails.
Came home and then met my wife and some friends for another 1.5 hour ride. And then straight to Apollo Burger.
