God is so good!!! The outcome of this should have been a lot worse. Not sure what happened going up the face of the finish line, I got wheel spin and it thru me sideways and came up short. I want to apologize to the guys I took out. I’m really sorry! I feel like I got hit by a train this morning- my left femur, left hip, right leg and lower back are pretty dang sore. I will do a lot of therapy and do my best to get to A2. Thank you for all the love and support.
