2021 Cheaha Challenge ULTRA – Part 2

By |May 29th, 2021|Blog, Cheaha Challenge, Climbing, Cycling, Event, Uncategorized|Comments Off on 2021 Cheaha Challenge ULTRA – Part 2

There were three big reasons that the 2021 ULTRA is so special to me.

Just a little bike ride in northeast Alabama of 126 miles and over 13,400′ elevation

This is what we pay good money for! The pain. Oh my!

This multi-part blog details how I became involved with the Cheaha Challenge ULTRA and what it has meant in my life: To encourage others to “drink the Kool-Aid” and […]

What to believe?

“You need a mask.” – early March 2020

“Masks are for medical professionals only.” – a few days later in March, 2020

Another Successful CAAM 200K NSB Ride

Why would anyone be surprised by such a statement? Of those who have experienced this ride as it has evolved over the years, this title could be a part of CAAM Event’s branding. Ever sine I did my first 200K in 2012, I was hooked on this ride. I have witnessed it morph with […]

How to Master the ULTRA at a Master’s Age

It is a lot of fun to read the training programs, tips and advice given by hot shots in their 30’s for challenging cycling events. I’ve read such pieces about numerous grueling cycling events in the South. I have done most of them and for sure – the ULTRA is indeed the most difficult. […]

A Tale of Two Stories

“GET OFF THE ROAD!” is something we cyclists hear all too commonly while we are out riding. Or, we get buzzed by a car going 50+mph. Occasionally we even are smoked out by big trucks whose drivers think it’s funny to watch us choke in the thick black cloud that they aggressively assaulted us […]

CAAM 200K Ride Leaders & Letter

The first time I did a CAAM 200K was in way back 2013, and it was the longest I had done. Back in those days the group was small enough that we could go into an establishment for lunch without having to rent the entire facility. Not any longer!

I’m excited that each time there […]

Athlete Spotlight – Felipe “El Torito” Monsalve

As a mom, personal trainer and coach, the gratification received by witnessing someone accomplish their goals is immeasurable. Recently I had a client come to me with a specific goal and needed some direction / training outlined to achieve the stated goal.

Felipe “El Torito” Monsalve (Pipe’) came to me for a consultation earlier this […]
