Today we crossed the Continental Divide on Hoosier Pass, and are now in Salida, CO!
I was pretty nervous for today’s climb on Hoosier Pass due to my knee injury, but my group (Team Challenge(d)) was super supportive, especially my climbing partner Michael! We had an awesome time, and even got to chat a little bit on the climb, despite the high altitude (the top was 11,000+ feet). It was my first day biking in the high altitude, so even the bike trail in the beginning gave me some trouble. I can’t wait until we descend and I feel like I can breathe again! Our team had a great time being positive through the climbing and wind/cold. It’s all about having positive attitude through tough times.
