I am working on a 10 step program to becoming a Cat 1 bike racer and I thought some the collective wisdom of BF.net could help me out. So far I think I have the first 3 steps worked out:
1. Get a divorce (or dump your boyfriend or girlfriend). You won't have time for them anyway, so you might as well get it over with.
2. Take out a second mortgage - you'll need the money for power taps, zipp wheels, ceramic bearings, massages and a host of other things. If you don't have a home to refinance, start sending back all the pre-approved credit card offers you get in the mail and build up a good stack of cards to work with.
3. Quit your job or drop out of school. You should spend all of your time either training or napping. Now that you have all that cash from your second mortgage or advances on your credit cards you don't need the job anyway.
I am kind of stuck here. What comes next?
