What it takes.

Final Tour of the Gila race report up.
For full results go HERE.

What does it take? I get asked this allot. What does it really take to do an Ironman? What does it take to ride the RAAm? What does it take to complete or win a stage race?
Well… it takes allot of things. It takes a lot of food! I found it amusing to look at everything I ate during the 5 days of racing. Here is an estimate of what I ate from the morning of the first stage to the end of the last stage.
...And still lost weight.
