I finally took the time to look at a map and it appears as though we climb Mounds Park Rd. twice. Once in the beginning and again at the end before turning into the State Park for the final climb. That is going to suck.

The ride up Mounds park road isn't the part that sucks, its the right turn up into the park to finish it off that is full of suck. That last 1/2 mile or so is like a 12-14% grade or something along those lines at a point when your legs already feel like they're made out of jelly. Should be fun.

I rode up into the park yesterday to make sure I can do that hill this year. Last year I had to walk up a little bit.

My goal is to not walk, but maybe it should be to not cry...

You are afraid of me, aren't you Petah?  Go ahead, the first step is admitting it.

That was my goal last year. I made it to the last mile, halfway up Mounds Park road before I had to unclip. I started walking and said Hell No and got back on. People walking their bikes were passing me, but I kept pedaling all the way into the park. It sucked worse than anything I'd done before that, but felt so awesome when the realization sunk in that I had completed it. Can't wait to do it again.

I was hyperventilating and crying along the side of the road, with Gatorade caked in my hair when I had the pleasure of meeting PeterAK himself last year @ HHH.

Quite literally the hardest thing I've ever done athletically.

Seriously.

Am both looking forward to this year and dreading it. Was better last year when I wasn't really sure what was coming...

Surprised
