I thought I'd give you my race in a bunch of great pics, I added just a few words of my day.
How hard can you push it if you need to? I proved to my self once again that I can push it pretty far when the reward is clear and high.
This is what lactic acid looks like...you just gotta love it.
Åre Extreme Challenge was a sweet day for me. Going from Tännforsen down the river a bit slower that expected but only minor troubles and with the best mindset still intact
1000 vertical meters up over the mountain bouncing between feeling strong and feeling like a dishrag then full speed down to Huså.
Crushing hard on my bike on the way back, chasing the girls in front hard, never getting closer but still keeping it up. Trying to get away from hunters from behind even harder. Finishing the last uphill with more than maximum lactic acid but still pushing more.
Happy day, solid performance, happy with my mental game, best support crew I could ever dream of, happy and proud with results, humbled by the strong girls racing with and against me.
