To quote Barry Pepper as Dale Earnhardt in '3'.
I decided recently I want to start racing.
Right now I am trying to get my weight down to where I feel I can be competitive.
I am currently 6'2", 218# (down from 232) and I want to get down to 180.
I had planned to start training this year, and start racing next year.
'F' it. I just registered for my first race. The Claremont(NH) Criterium on July 14th.
It is a flat .5 mile course.
My main goal is not to be dropped off the back.
I came from Texas and have always been pretty decent on the flats.
Most of the folks up here seem to be skinny little climbing monkies .
So I guess we'll see what happens.
Wish me luck.
