You cannot miss most of your intense workouts over the course of the past month and actually do well in a cross race. Lets hope a couple days of opening things up this week make this Saturday suck less... I'm somewhat doubtful.
I'm mostly just a guy trying to keep it all together. I love my family, my bikes, and my ability to be something that resembles an athlete from time to time. I juggle a job, a house, some training, and all the stuff my kids manage to get involved with. I'd never be where I am without the support of wonderful people like my wife. I'd probably be better off if I traded some beers for some z's. I'd definitely be better off if I could learn not to crash so much.
