Well...what can I say the day will soon come when I hopefully get to earn my "Brass Tacks" as I battle with only the strongest at Crusher in the Tusher. http://tusharcrusher.com/. This is a grueling race, not for the weak of spirit. This race is one that climbs nearly 11,000 vertical feet on rough gravel roads. There is a sillyness about this event that I am so drawn too as over the last month, one questions about how to REALLY train for this. The sillyness emerges as I've heard it described as a "stupid hard" race. I love it. Humor emerges as the only saving grace when I dare to think about these climbs. So send me those warm fuzzies on Saturday and rest assured there will be a serious race-report to follow!
