Meh. I figured out why racing has been a chore for me as of late. I have a love affair with riding my bike, but haven't been fun with racing. I've been so concentrated on trying to win, I haven't been meeting people, hanging out, or really trying to have fun with it.
Last night, I changed that. I rode a crappy race (I was tired), but had the most fun i've ever had at our local training race.
Moral of the story? Have fun kids, or find a new hobby!
