Sometimes, midway through a quickly passing summer that started off full expectations, I am in desperate need of a reset. I’m scattered, stagnant on my bike, tired, and frustratingly bored. Then, along comes Rapha Rising… this silly Strava challenge that for the second year in a row has managed to push me just hard enough and force me to narrow my focus on the essentials in order to finish. As I rest today, I’m tried, but reset and reenergized about what I can do on my bike despite work, life and a occasional lazy streak.
#tbt found this great photo (Derek Blagg/MFG) from Star Crossed CX race in Seattle last year. Who knows what I’m saying, but there are some rad ladies in this photo. @abbylwatson @powitzer #speedvagen #breadwinner
