So obviously I didn't mean to publish this post yet! Instead of hitting "save as draft", I must have published it. Those of you that read my blog saw:
"My dear friends -
I've decided not to go "public" with my plans to ride the Tevis this year. Tevis has been a dream of mine for a very long time and for some reason I want to keep this quiet and close to"
Very cryptic....Well, since this much already leaked - I may as well at least give everyone the basics -
1. I have registered and plan to ride the Tevis this year on Farley.
2. I am in the process of preriding the trail, and will preride from Robinson Flat to the finish by race day.
3. It is going well and Farley is amazing.
I've struggled with whether to make my decision public. It's hard to describe. Tevis has been a very dream for a very long time, and for some reason its been a very personal decision and process. I had made the decision not to blog about Tevis until after I did it. I had planned to write some blogs about some of my training and thought processes and save them as drafts. I was going to schedule them to publish starting on July 29th, when I left for Tevis, and then I would come back after the race and let you know I had done it! Well....you can see how well that worked out! LOL.
Since I've already let the cat out of the bag, I've made some compromises - I will keep you updated on my general progress, however plan on the full update after the race!
In some ways it's a relief you guys know - everyone here is such a wonderful encouragement and a great source of ideas. I'll be coming to you with questions, I'm sure! Thanks for being so understanding - plan on reading full updates of my training and Tevis preperation, starting July 29th!
