Firewater 50

I did it! I am the first female to ever do the full Firewater 50 on a singlespeed. It was hard, but not as hard as I thought it would be. I had some stomach issues, as always, but tried my best to stay focused on the task at hand. I was pretty happy with the result, especially since I've really only been training hard on the weekends, not much during the week because of school. It took me 6:45 total, but stopped a lot to make bike adjustments (as I was racing Eddie's Unit 2-9er, not mine). I think my ride time was probably more like 6:15. I will try to do a full write-up, but time is scarce now adays.

Yeah Namrita! Awesome job.

Does this mean that when you come to Lumberjack next year you'll be battling it out on a SS? :-)
