Game Face on; ilg at 50…still toeing the Start Line and making the Game chi-full…”i’m totally stoked to finish 2nd place in the 50+ AG here at the DWC Championships…considering that Ivan (Unkovskoy) was the only person to beat me over the course of 4 various cycling events? That’s like finishing second to Ned Overend or John Tomac!…for a yoga teacher who trains at a fraction of the volume of these guys do on a bike in THIS mecca of world-class cyclists? are you kidding me? this New Old Daddy is TOALLY stoked! and i don’t even have fancy bike racing equipment! i see my second place as a huge HOORAH! for all c(om)men men who don’t train on bikes a lot but rather rely on what i teach, Wholistic Fitness™!”

i TAF’d i was going fast tonight…

i pretty much did go fast…for an old yoga guy on a not fancy bike…

covered a hilly 15-mile course with wind in 36 minutes…

that’s nearly 25 mph average…solo…no drafting…just you and the clock; that’s why Time Trials are called, “The Race of Truth”

Ilg only has one Direct Experience with Lance Armstrong. It wasn’t much of a moment…yet it was profound. If my personal encounter with Lance was like the one I’m about to describe below? Then, love him, tolerate him, or otherwise, you gotta admit; this King of the TDF (Tour de France) has certainly entertained a heccuva Karmic incarnation affecting millions – perhaps billions – of people, many of them Cancer warriors and warrioress’s. And that is enough to make this feeble yogi bow at the (maybe not so) Lotus Feet of Lance.

For ilg? Mt. Taylor begins right here…on the spongy track and field of my alma mater; Miller Jr. High School….my churchyard of a thousand sacred sweats…for this former paralyzed yogi? today marked the beginning of my run training to perhaps complete, maybe even cOMpete toward another podium in February’s Mt. Taylor Winter Quadrathlon…will YOU join me? if you think you have Endurance? if you consider yourself a yogi? C(om)e, toe this Start Line – solo – with me this Feb….think you’re “cross-fit”? okay…c’mon…throw down THIS 3 decade-long Test Piece of WF and join the esteemed ranks of other WF Warriors who’ve accomplished it: Fit Kit, Padma, Yogi Jut, Yogi bRad, Flex Armstrong, and perhaps one or two more WF Students that have taken Sacred Pilgrimage to cOMplete this race as a soloist.
