What Was I Saying Again About That Course Looking Fun?
Because I pre-rode the Xterra Aspen Valley course today and it was the opposite of fun. I'm sure I walked way more of the course than I rode. If it wasn't too late to get a refund on my hotel I was going to turn around and drive right back home today. But it was too late. So I'll at least go and do the swim, possibly a 6 mile loop of the course (there are 2) then do the run. It's a DNF (did not finish) and no points for Nationals but at least I'd get in a good hard training day. Or maybe I'll gut out the whole enchilada. I've never DNF'd a race before and once you pin a race number on me I'm not likely to quit. Maybe I'll gut out that second lap. Because hiking with my bike is super fun.
