i was giving the kid honest advice as someone who was in his shoes a few years ago. i'm a few years older than him now and have certain goals i'm working too. this kid is too new to the sport to even have goals beyond "race and get faster."
furthermore, "traditional" college spring breaks don't appeal to me much, but i'm weird. i have my fair share of fun though and don't need to validate that to some anonymous tool on the internet.
