Event starts tomorrow.
Today I pick up my bikes at the local bike shop where I Shipped them to. Yes, I said bike(s) plural. One is a road bike and the other a mountain bike. This afternoon t I meet the organizers. They are splitting us into 3 rental homes near the farm where the event is taking place. Tonight is a kick off dinner where we all get to meet each other. “Business Casual” is the dress code. This is the only night that we dress up.
Tomorrow is a tough day. I have 3 events. At 8:00AM I’m doing a 20 mile “time trial” bike race. Participating CEO’s are sent off one minute apart and it’s a race for time. At 11:00 AM, I’m doing a PT Test……9 fitness tests, 2 minutes each with a 1 minute rest in between (Pushups, pull ups, sit-ups, etc.). I’ve been practicing this, and all I can tell you is that it is “hell”, but short :-)). At 3pm I do a “mountain stair climb”. This is a steep stair climb about a mile straight up at a significant grade. I have no idea what this will feel like, especially after the other two events.
Excited to get going!
My goal is modest ……… just finish 🙂
