Went through the budget with my wife last night and determined that with my son's recent hospitalization, I really can't justify wasting gas money, entry fees, and license renewal to race this weekend for a race I really wanted to do. We have some savings, but it is earmarked for other uses. Discretionary spending for bicycle racing gets cut first (yes, she is cutting things she enjoys as well). Share the pain.
I am in the best shape I have been in for years. Oh well; if the bills turn out less than expected, I'll renew and hit the local training series a few times this spring / summer. I just prefer road races to crits.
