Who's in for 2018? 39 days until race day.
What's your distance? Camping, Glamping, Hoteling, or local? Which is worse? Nasty Grade or the run?
Me: 70.3, local, give me Nasty Grade any day... the run is going to be a bitch (especially since I've been on the injury rolls and only have 39 days to train for the run).
Anybody going out for a pre-race ride? I'm probably riding Easter Sunday. Lake will be open!
You guys are killing me with all this Wildflower and St. Croix talk on St, but really awesome that it's back on....for 15 years I made one of these races my spring ritual...last round at Wildflower was May 2015. We had a good old fashioned ST smackdown in the M50-54 with the top podium going to posters from around here! Now that I think about it, Wildflower 2015, with the "lake bed run" was the last time I have been on a podium in anything in my life!!!!
Oh, I wonder who won that smackdown?
Modesty prevents me. But, someone got their revenge at IMLT (RIP)
Let's be clear...."the other guy" won the Wildflower + IM Tahoe Stage Race by A LOT.
Are you going back to Wildflower to defend. I am embarking on a new sporting life as an IM and butterfly swimmer. So far, my results are basically sweeping last place in my age group at the Ontario Championships. I am thinking about going to Nationals in a month so that someone can come in last place and spare the guy who would otherwise hold that position!!!!
I'm also going in for a surgery consult next Friday with the orthopedic surgeon. If she can do a nerve decompression, I think I can get back to 99%....so not saying "never again" to another Wildflower smackdown as stupid as my wife would say that is!!!!
I'm going back, but not defending; '16 I kinda sucked. Good luck on the surgery consult. BTW, I'm coming up on 1 year anniversary from my artificial disc that I had put in between C6-C7. Without it I'd have a useless left arm. Got it back immediately post surgery (a miracle basically) ye ha! fingers crossed for ya - Dev.
I could break the course record - theoretically, Bishop Pickering - from the movie "Caddyshack"
