We're all oddly shapen bags of water. Without it we perish; too much of a good thing is possible. GDR racers are struggling with the heat and aridity and it's taking a big toll on everyone out there. The most recent reports are filled with the personal drama (trauma?) of this struggle.
Sunday I did a little cruise of the Alpine Loop. As I took in the breathtaking scenery and high altitude climbs, water was everywhere. My thoughts drifted towards the past, current and future struggles of the enduro crowd out there. With a tinge of guilt I savored the cool temps and abundant H20.
The stats surprised me. It's the easiest 10k of climbing around. Maybe it's the water ;)
