While I sit in the sunny Pyrenees, fretting over my (really, really big) one-day sportive tomorrow, I am reminded by Facebook that in the big scheme of things, this ain’t nothin’.
Firstly, I have a friend from my days of teaching in Japan who is running around Mont Blanc, through 3 countries, over 175 km and goodness knows how many meters of climbing…in the mountains…without much or any sleep….all weekend long.
So there’s that.
Then there’s my 60 yr old cycling guru, Rob Armstrong, who also races tomorrow, but for 7 straight days, in his 2nd Haute Route Alps. If you’d like to ‘live follow’ him, here’s the website: http://www.hauteroute.org/
But really, it’s all about me, so I’ll continue to bite my nails till at least 7:30 tomorrow morning.

Good luck, Gerry–wishing you a sunny day, then it will be a good one!
Thanks, Jan. It’s all over now. Will write an article while the scars are still fresh…
Best of luck, ride safe and in the meantime enjoy biting your nails and fretting in the sunny Pyrenees … emphasis on the adjective! It is long overdue…
Beautiful weather in the end, Suze. More soon!
Have a great ride! Looking at the HR Pyrenees images from the last week the scenery looks stunning
It was lovely, Julian, except for the pain of course.
Good luck and keep the rubber on the road!
Thanks, Dude (convenient name you have!).
May the Force Be With You ! from JAPAN
Never mind that question, I just read your blog. I’ll never forget that 2015 Marmotte…although I’d like to sometimes. 暑かった！
