This M(om)ent…Sweating, Swooning, and Stillness here in the Vortex..

… it’s actually (today) an hour and seven minute climb to the top of the scintillating, single track, technical downhill section…and that is at my high Zone 3 pace. your actual climb time might be slower (or faster) depending on your fitness/skills. the whole 16-mile route took me 1:35 front door-to-front door.

actually, i’ll be racing in the 45-54 Age group, yet, really, i’ll be more interested in those 50+’rs…

Basically? ilg just ‘watched ilg pedal up the mountain.’ This ‘witnessing’ technique is an ancient spiritual warrior tool for transforming suffering into mere effort. Suffering has emotional baggage, however pure Effort is Suffering without the emotional baggage.
