well, I have lots of problems, but the problem with doing a 100 this weekend is that I am not excited about the prospect of doing the race (for me ride that I hope to finish). None the less I am still thinking about going. Why? Well, I think I should. Why? Because if I don’t I might think regret not going to the race. Why? Well, to be honest, I have no idea. I just think it is my lot in life to show up to races and get totally destroyed and be happy about that.
This time I think I will be smarter than normal and not go to the race. I am not prepared, neither mentally or physically and I don’t have the food I need, plus I am not excited about the prospect of going. Normally, I see the race and think, “won’t that be awesome?” but this time I saw it and thought, “man won’t that be stupid hard and I am not prepared”. So what am I to do? Be smart, do 4 hours today and do 4 tomorrow and then a mtb ride Sunday and try to be happy. I would likely go the Shenedoah (sp) area of VA and check out some trail. It is only two hours and I want to take a couple of friends there next week anyway and knowing at least where I am going might help.
I am pre-bailing on a race I never planned on doing, what a wuss! Oh well, there you have it.
