L O T O L I


Some of you may have heard of the LOTOJA, where bikers take on the trek from Logan to Jackson, WY - well, I took on my own little version of the LOTOJA, shortening it about 80 miles and changing the last two letters from "JA" to "LI" to represent "Lindon" (the ending destination). This is a goal I've had for some time, especially on my new single-speed bike, and nothing would stop me - not even three flat tires. So I did it. I left bright and early at 7:30 a.m. and unfortunately did indeed have three flat tires, which take some time to repair, but I didn't let them stop me. 14 1/2 hours, and 120 miles later I pulled up to my parents home in the cozy town of Lindon.
Though my body was beat and worn, my spirits were high, and I felt in that moment as though I was somehow distantly related to Lance Armstrong himself.
