CLIMBING A MOUNTAIN
There is a mountain. I want to climb it on my bike. It's 26 miles long. It's a 5% grade. It will probably take me about 4 hours to climb it. It'll be slow. It'll be painful. Somewhere around mile 11, I'll probably wonder what the hell I'm doing. Somewhere around mile 17, I'll probably cry.
I have a blood disorder that scares me and makes me wonder if it's gonna get the best of me. If I climb to the top of a mountain on my bike, I will tell my blood disorder to go fuck itself.
Training starts next week. Climbing starts the last week of February.
