I'm getting ready for the Marathon Nationals in Bend, OR next week. Trying to keep my mileage/hours in the saddle up as I approach race time. This will most likely be the last race I do this season before settling into more base miles. This morning I road around my neighborhood, then dropped down along the coastal highway before making my way up into the Presidio and back home. Trying to keep my top speed up while not working myself too hard.
I ride into work everyday now. I've since retired my IF and mostly ride my Tarmac SL4. I feel spoiled having such a fast commuting rig. I don't rock too much riding specific gear other than a Rapha rain jacket, helmet and shoes. I hate having to carry a lot of gear, especially if I'm bringing my dog to work.
