A few weeks ago...we did a thing. We took a BIG step towards living our "life is better tandem" mantra, zipped down to Stillwater bright and early on a Saturday morning and got registered up for LANDRUN DOUBLE. *CUE SCARED STOKE-FEST".
Initially I think we were both just completely scared out of our minds and in a "what did we just do" mindset. But now that we've sunk into a bit of pre-training, we are both just really excited.
If you aren't familiar with Landrun 100 - you should make yourself familiar. Because it is a race like no other. And last year they added the Landrun Double. The Landrun Double will be a gravel road 50K on Friday, followed by the regular Landrun 100 on Saturday. So far we are planning to ride the 100 portion on our Salsa Powderkeg, but depending on conditions we might just end up on singles. Either way it is going to be AWESOME.
So we got all registered, kitted up and went out for some sweet sweet Oklahoma gravel. We only did 20 miles of the 31 because #excuses, and after wished we had just stuck it out because ole Bobby lead everyone right through his clearly favorite thing in the world. A big ole muddy crossing. But we wanted taco's and mama's body isn't quite ready for all those hills. But I did learn more about myself and how I climb best that day so that was a great take-away.
We snarfed a fair amount of Fuzzy's tacos and queso before headed home for the weekend to get our heads wrapped around our training coming up.
If anyone wonders what we do for dates....this is a pretty good indicator of a date day for us. Adventure + Food = our best days.
