Struggle is real(ly, really, really something)

Both beautiful and unforgiving -Ian Matteson Photography

    Great ride Tim – I had a similar experience with my first DK100 – coming back into Emporia and the welcoming was completely unexpected. Come on back next year and do the 200 – I’m going in for that. And maybe the Coast to Coast too.

    Thanks to all of you for putting these podcasts together – it has been part of my experience this year.

      100% concur on the podcasts. These podcasts have been great in helping prepare, and in just getting into the experience of the whole thing. (I went “full GU” for the event as a consequence of listening to Yuri et. al. and it was really successful)

    I looked up the times for Ryan and John. I realise now that I was likely in a small group with you guys right near the end – last 5 or 10 miles-or-so. Thanks for the company and the support. I was the guy in the aqua jersey who nearly went the wrong way with a couple of miles to go. Thanks for yelling out to me to set me straight. Loved the podcast.
