BaseCamp alum Shannon Scanlon shared her and her husband Den's experience at Unbound Gravel 2023.
Our Unbound Gravel race was certainly epic this year; lots of mud, thunderstorms, and more mud. We are both happy we gave it our best and the outcomes. After 5 flats, minor mechanicals and miles of mud, Den finished 186 miles of the XL and I finished 4th in my age group for the 100.
I wanted to give a shout out to the Basecamp program for getting me to my 4th place age group win. Thank you to Coach Jim Pomeroy for dialing in my training plan, Namrita Brooke for all your nutrition coaching that kept me from bonking this year, and Menachem Brodie for the core training that kept me upright when I hit the loose gravel and the miles of mud.
