This last week was kind of a bummer for me. I got news from both the Dirty Kanza and Leadville that my name wasn't drawn to participate in the 2018 versions of either event. I have to say, I am feeling kind of pissed off about it.
The 2015 version of the Dirty Kanza 200 was like a 100 mile mud-filled survival fest followed by a 100 mile gravel race. Throw in a steady 15 mph wind and I had the ingredients for a 17 hour and 45 minute adventure race. A full 3 hours longer than I had hoped for. And to be honest, I had a good day!
