Last Year Was Sorta Fun
So I should be looking forward to having a fun race this weekend. You know, I have a chance to take third place three years in a row.
The second race in the Southern Classic Series is this Sunday, which in reality should be my first race in the series this year. But, I don't wanna go.
"Why? Don't you want to race against all the sandbagging clydesdales or the cat1 "I ride a single speed because people think it's cool" single speeders?"
My "season" hasn't even officially started yet, and already I'm burned out on cross country racing. I ride bikes for fun, and I realized that racing against a bunch of serious people every weekend isn't very much fun. I'll probably do a couple of cross country races (even in this series) here and there, but I won't be doing the whole thing like I did the last two years. It wore me the hell out, and I told myself I won't do that again.
Instead, I'll find some other things to do. You know, like actually riding on Saturdays with everyone. In the past, I would take Saturday off because "I had a race on Sunday." I missed out on some perfect riding days because of this, and that shit won't happen again. I also plan to do a few more endurance races (which are way more fun than XC), starting with one next weekend.
More on that next week.
For now, I'm gonna go have some fun.
