STP one-day finish!

Posted by BoutwithGout on Monday, August 18, 2014,
It was my first Seattle-to-Portland one-day ride.  It was my 2nd STP; the first time took me 2 days.  130 miles the first day and 70 miles the following day.  This 2014 STP was brutal because of the heat that got up to mid-90s especially around the middle of the ride at around 100 miles.  I started cramping up after the mid-point stop at Olympia and I actually started to turn around ready to call it quits.  I figured that I wouldn't be able to finish even if I rested a while.

About Me

I'm a blogger hit with gout early when I was in my 20s (now a couple of decades ago). But I just can't give up biking, running, hiking, and just being able to be out and about exploring places. As an office worker, an organizational psychologist/data analyst, I tend to be sedentary so getting up and about is a must. But as a psychologist and data geek, I'm interested in the psychological aspects of gout as well as the data. And really, I just want to share what I learn about gout, what works for me (and doesn't work). Gout is a very personal battle and each individual is unique. I'm not an MD, so please take heed and always check with your physician.
