For those of you that want the facts first and details later, let's dive in with a summary: I had my second best Leadville 100 Mountain Bike time at 10:09:56.

Training through menopause – suggestions?
Q. I have worked with a coach and saw steady gains in my power and endurance after coming to the sport of cycling a little late in life. Then I hit a brick wall called menopause. After a year of trial and error to figure out how to keep improving and not lose ground I am stumped. The changes in my hormones have caused a serious lack of endurance, a small weight gain, and I never know if I will be able to finish a long ride or race competitively because my energy levels are completely unpredictable.
