It’s been a busy start to the week. Clients in town have kept me otherwise occupied in meetings and dinners. Can’t complain though because they traveled to me for a change and I didn’t have to extend an existing trip or make a new one.
This morning I stole a few moments before leaving for the office to enjoy my front yard. A little calm before the storm. And since it started raining midway through the day it really was perfect to enjoy it for a few minutes.
Had a good ride this weekend though it’s obvious that I’m not going into the race this weekend in any kind of form. I’m really going to treat it as a nice, long training ride. Prep for SM100. It’s going to suck. I will be out there forever. I guess my goal is to finish before they give the awards out, or to make all the cutoffs. Aspirations are low. While climbing hills on Sunday with my back and my feet hurting I was asking myself all those self-depreciating questions. WTF was I doing signing up for a big long race like this in June? Did I really think this was a good idea? Don’t I have much better things to spend money on?
But it’s game on. I at least will go out there and give it a try.
