We are still in Park City where Team Byers had planned to unleash our individual furies on the 78 miles & 14,000' of climbing that is the Park City Point to Point.
We arrived late Thursday, had an early dinner, and organized some pre-race gear so that Friday could be as mellow as possible before the big day.
I woke up Friday to an angry tummy and repeated "red alert" trips to the bathroom. Ruh Roh. Food didn't sound good at all but I did a short pre-ride at Round Valley anyway and immediately afterwards I knew something was not right. By 2pm, I had body aches and chills and was lying on the couch. Dammit. By 4pm I was a worthless pile of mush and knew that I could not race the next day.
To say that I am disappointed is an understatement. I had this race circled on my calendar for a year and I wanted to take a serious shot at breaking 9 hours.
More on race day and Michelle's awesome race later...
