GRI--Gu Related Injury!!

A race update will follow, but I wanted to share my bizarre race "injury" from the Nathan's oly today. About 10 miles into the bike, I decided I needed a power bar gel to boost my energy. Since it was already HOT out, the gel was warm and much more runny than usual. As a result, I got gel all over my leg, bike, and arm. The gel oozed down my leg and on to the back of my knee. For the remaining 14 miles, the skin on the back of my knee stuck together and pulled apart with every pedal stroke. By the end of the ride, I had rubbed the back side of my knee raw. Lesson learned--beware the gels!!
