Before I start I ran a 32×20. I just wanted to get that out of the way because I knew how much single speeders like to ask “what gear you running?” So, now that that’s taken care of read on…
It was late at night approaching midnight on October 1, 2015, and I was really tired, almost falling asleep, but I willed myself to stay awake. I had to be online the minute registration opened, because the solo spots for 24 hours in Old Pueblo (24HOP) sell out fast. After claiming my spot, I thought to myself, it was hard enough staying awake to register how will I stay awake all night for the race? This would be my first 24 hour solo effort so I had no idea what was in store for me, but over the next 4.5 months I trained hard with my coach, Dave Marks, and Racelab to prepare for 24 hours in the saddle.
February came quicker than I thought it would and the race was quickly approaching. I was happy to reach this point deathly and in one piece, but the last few weeks leading up to race day were emotional and stressful. Two weeks before the race a friend of ours, and past 24HOP solo winner, was hit by a car and suffered from several severe injuries. This tragedy really broke Danielle’s and my hearts. All we could do was pray and that’s what we did, constantly. We felt so helpless during this time and it’s all we could think of. Over the course of the next two weeks updates continued to show our friend improving, but the road ahead would be long and difficult. In addition to that, stressful and unplanned issues kept popping up, in light of our friend’s situation these issues were minuscule.

I tested out the new Women’s Apex kit recently, and was pretty impressed. The Apex Jersey is super lightweight and breathable. The back and sleeves are made of a mesh-like fabric that offers great air flow on hot days and wicks moisture really well, even while wearing a hydration pack.
