Recent text message exchange between me and my Silver State 508 Teammate, Tim:
Me: When do you think I should start training for the 508?
Tim: 10 years ago.
Time to get serious! Race-specific 508 training starts tomorrow, with a 5-hour planned ride in and out of the Cuyahoga Valley. I'll have plenty more of those in the next few weeks. The race is in just over a month (Saturday, September 19th).
We are Team Hell Hounds (2x team). All info about the race can be found on the website, like the elevation map for this race:
I'll be posting more 508-centric stuff as this journey continues. Stay tuned...
