It's been a frustrating and tiring week. I got on my bike cleared my mind and things looked up. It's amazing what a bike ride can do. For some people bikes and racing are a hobby, something they do for fun on the weekend, something to stay in shape. There's abosultely nothing wrong with that. But that is not me, racing bikes, training, competiton, these things are something different for me. I don't think I can make a living racing bikes, and yes I have a full time job, but cyclocross is more than something I do for fun. For those whom it's a hobby, for those who do this simply for fun, it's easy to misunderstand this perspective. Last weekend I went to Maine (stay tuned for the report). It was a lot of effort, time, and money for a couple races. Was it worth it? Absolutely yes! If you get this, if you understand....thank you and thanks for listening.
