Today we are switching things up as I, Dr. John Arnold, invite you to join me during my drive through Colorado as I reflect on the path that brought me to the Leadville Colorado 100 Mile Mountain Bike Race. A look inside my mind and what would be my journal, this episode is all about the culmination of hard work, dedication and a tinge of mid-life crisis.
