deep breaths

Sometimes I wonder why I like to learn the hard way. I was expecting my thesis to come back covered in red marks, but when the first PAGE came back a disaster yesterday I pretty much lost it!!! I have not been this stressed out in a long time...and sort of wish I had taken the "easy" way out and not done the thesis. To keep this bike related, I do have the Heritage Park 6 hour race this weekend. No, I'm not ready. Not even close. So far, in fact, that I'm basically considering it a training ride because I haven't ridden 6 hours straight since last September. I'm carving out some time in this week of hell to go pre-ride the course tomorrow afternoon....even if it's raining! Go figure, the forecast for the weekend is high 50's and rain! Perfect for a mountain bike race..

Good luck. Something must be in the air. I just found out my truck needs major engine work which pretty much will wipe out the first half of summers "racing budget". Ah...the real world. ;-)

Deep breath, deep breath, deep breath. You have gotten a ton of riding in and will do great. Just get out on your bike, don't think about anyone else, and have fun riding!

P.S. You don't have to ride for 6 hours to do a 6 hour race. Otherwise we would be in big trouble for training for 24's :-)

PPS. Call me as soon as you are done. I'll be cheering for you from Michigan! You might actually hear me :-)
