After a quick chat with my wife about our plans for next summer, I've registered for the 2019 Tahoe Trail 100.
I decided to make this a genuinely bucket-list-worthy experience, and signed up for the whole enchilada: 100km of mountain biking with ~7300 ft. of climbing. Definitely a beast of a ride.
The course map is also on Strava, and if Levi Leipheimer's time is anything to go by, I have a long way to go before I'm ready for this race.
Over and over again, I have to admit that the first, best thing I can do for my fitness is to drop 10 lbs. So that's what I'll focus on for a while.
