We thought he was nuts the first time...but now we know he's lost his marbles. Every 2nd week of August we drive up Little Cottonwood Canyon to spend a week there and there are always bikers climbing the treacherous 3500 ascent. One day i said outloud, "I would NEVER do that!" and before the words were out Troy said dreamily, "I want to do that one day." Well he surprised us all and did---which really isn't a suprise at all for those who know him well. His fan club this year included both our parents, our cute 4 kids who cheered for everyone who crossed the finishline, his devoted wife (me), and the clarke family who were also cheering on Sam, their dad. It was a beautiful day and he did amazing! 10 miles. 3500 feet uphill. 1 hour 30 min. Crazy and incredible.
