Riding bikes is easy when it’s warm and sunny. Other days, less so.
Nutrition: on point.
Training: done and done.
So what’s left…
Day 5 of #6DaysofKanza is dedicated to pushing through. Having the perseverance and the drive to keep on trucking, because somewhere north of hour 8, despite the baking sun and heat of the day, things can start to go dark. From mile 170 on, you really start to question your sanity and why you’re doing exactly what you’re doing. And that’s the point! A race like #DK200 is transformative. It’ll push you to places you never knew you could go and leaves you a better person on the other side.
