v proud of this day on the bike w Erl !! Land Run 100. significantly less mud than last year.
i knew i had about 11 minutes to make up on the 1st place Double girl but i didn't really know her. rolled out in back of pack EZ and then around mile 10 i saw her! on a SS! i recognized her pack from the day before. we went back and forth for a few miles, i dropped my chain (?!) and then got ahead and just had to ride hard the rest of the day. i had no idea this girl's bike speed but i figured if she was on a SS i would have to push the flats/downs and then survive climbing. we rolled into Guthrie at 3.5 hours (90 minutes faster than last year) and had a good TA. I kept one eye on the road but didn't see the girl (not that that meant much). rolled out of Guthrie w less clothes on and then kept pushing. felt really motivated until about mile 90, then it was a slog into the finish. i felt like i had rode really solid the whole day. i didn't wear a HR strap bc it chafed me yesterday, but it would have been nice to see those #s. at the finish line we waited for 15 minutes but no Double women so i figured i had the W...and it was true!!
