Hellbender 16-hour
Note: Commentary provided by Bob (in green) and Mickey (in red). Chuck was on vacation and settled for telling me what a great job I'd done and going back to kayaking Lake Michigan. **** When Bonkhard Racing cleared their schedule for 2015, Missouri was l...

2015 Stubborn Mule 30-hour
Cable, WI, is a long drive from the St. Louis area, but it's totally worth the trip (especially if you aren't the one who does the driving!). This year the Stubborn Mule adventure race  moved northwest to the Cable area, and though I was looking forward to ...

Creve Coeur Heartbreaker
Seems like my Friday Facebook news feed was filled with posts from people headed out of town to go mountain biking with their significant others. And OK, maybe "filled" is an overstatement, but where I don't envy material things (much), I'm definitely jealo...

Mother's Day
I grew up outnumbered by three brothers. Though I longed at the time for a sister, in retrospect it was pretty cool to be the only girl, and it was great training for both my own family of all boys and my place as the lone girl on my adventure racing team. ...

One-trick pony
It can't have been all that long ago that I considered myself a runner, but the most running I've done in the past couple weeks has been one terrible 5k training run and the semi-regular Couch to 5K training runs I've been doing with my nephew and his frien...

Council Bluff
I've ridden on the Council Bluff Lake trail a couple of times, once for my second Berryman AR  and once last summer when Luke and Casey were staying nearby with their families, but I've never ridden all of the way around the lake. Like most trails I've ridd...

Muddy Kanza
Weather has been a huge factor in some of the big gravel races so far this year with Land Run 's mud destroying derailleurs left and right and only one person making it to the first Trans Iowa checkpoint before the cutoff. Hopes that Dirty Kanza would avoid...

Teamwork makes the dream work! (Hairy Hundred 2015)
Falling just two weeks before Dirty Kanza, the Hairy Hundred offers mid-Missouri-area gravel fans one last local-ish opportunity to race before the DK taper begins.  This year it also afforded some prime weather-stalking, as the chances of rain swung wildly...

"Racing" Cedar Cross
Note: Unless otherwise credited, all photos are by Lori Vohsen. My idea of racing is typically to show up and complete the race, whether that's riding out the mileage or the clock, rather than competing.  Focusing too much on results takes the fun out of a ...

Good news/bad news
The bad news which, to be fair, isn't really bad news unless you're superstitious. You see, I've had some really good rides lately, which means I'm due for a bad one just in time for Cedar Cross . That would be a real disappointment because a) it's Cedar Cr...

2015 Tour of Hermann
Scheduled about 90 days before Dirty Kanza, Tour of Hermann is perfectly timed to be both a hard weekend of training and a good gauge of where your bike fitness is.  Last year I arrived in some of the best shape of life and with solid training behind me; th...

I'm a runner, adventure racer and cyclist, easily talked into new challenges and types of event in which to flounder in all the spare time left between parenting, teaching, and grad school.
