I felt like I was going to die.

Why?

Lots of races have a neutral start section. Gets them going and warmed up, probably helps with the jitters. Someone who actually races could probably enlighten you better than I.

Please place your warm clothes for the decent in a plastic bag, inside your rider bag. This will help to insure your items are dry when you pick them up at the summit. If you do not make it to the summit, your bags will be available at the Award/ Expo area later in the afternoon.

Racing at 14,000 feet above sea level is exhilarating and challenging in unique ways, we appreciate your patience and understanding as we navigate this iconic event with you!"

Sounds like fun!

Get a good nights sleep and good luck!

It seemed long just to warm up. They don't have warmups in other kinds of races.

Funny story, I was doing the Radio Tower climb this past winter and was pushing so hard, when suddenly I thought I broke the trainer when everything collapsed, but it was really me pulling my rear wheel out from the horizontal dropout. I have zero desire to do that stupid climb again. Not gonna do it. Wouldn't be prudent.

it's not a funny story in my opinion.

Any tale of Zwift mishaps is hilarious.

I'm not looking forward to today's group ride. Besides being the oldest and fattest, we are supposed to be around 100į "real feel" by the end of our ride when I will be even older.

its ok. I like your dad jokes. Riding weather sounds awesome. I'm on the opposite side of the state wishing I could ride.

Stay safe. So, you’re in southern Illinois? Belleville, St. Louis? If so, I kneel down to your humidity.

Not everyone can be (intentionally) funny.

Yep, flew into STL, and visiting fam in Belleville. Saw the red moon last night. Didnít know the fire smoke/ash was so bad here. My lungs feel it.

I've been putting it off 'til I was required to interact with people for work. And even though I don't have to yet, I have a feeling that time is right around the corner...

​​​​​​Maybe in a couple weeks I'll go see a baseball game. I'll have to bring the binoculars and sit in the worst seats so there's no one within a safe radius though, it being a mostly indoor stadium. OR I guess I could buy a block of 9 good seats to keep a distance, if I hit the lottery :)
