Our team was sent an email about not stepping up in the master's races this year. There a 2 guys in our area that have won practically all of the races (They only lost the races they didn't enter). They're on the same team. Plus three others that know how to lay a hurting on the field. Our team hasn't done too well - to say the least. We were asked to work together, to organize and make a showing.
The race is 90 miles long this weekend. I've raced no more than 60. And the intensity, my God the intensity of these races because these two guys annihilate everyone from the get go. But, I emailed my manager and told him that if he needed me, I would do my absolute best.
I kinda hope he doesn't get the email. But I kinda do. I can't even imagine the pain that my body will undergo. But it would be a good pain - if you're into that sort of thing. And I am.
