tired Morrison to Mt Evans 81.5 mi 06:30 12.5mph pace

Today was 2 Cat-1/ 2 cat-2/ 1 cat-4 climbs. 7971 ft of climbing and a whole heck a lot of cramping up. I tried to tell the legs to shut up but man they where defiant and screaming louder than ever. Oh yea I topped out at 12,371 ft above sea level before I threw in the towel and coasted down hill to home. I thought I could suffer through the last 8 miles to the top, but I rounded the corner heard thunder and saw about 50 crows take flight. I took this as a sign and turned back for home. Head hung low in defeat. Now it is time to watch the Tour who where at the highest the Tour has ever been at 9000 and some change. I can not wait to see how they do in this altitude.
