Almost Does Count-TX Cross Championship ’10

January 23, 2010

So many athletes get down on themselves for falling short of the coveted 1st place, especially when a State Champion jersey is on the line. Not this one. Not since I’ve adopted my “Primal athlete psychology”. You see, success is a journey, not a destination. And this season was a good journey. I finished 2nd in the singlespeed category to Craig Virr, who also went on to finish 3rd in the pro race against a very very tough field. Congrats, Craig. You are a true warrior in my book. Congrats to all who made it to Travis County East Metropolition park to fight the good fight last weekend, especially the single speeders, because it was a very tough course for just having one gear. Very generous rainfalls the week before left the course pretty muddy and torn up after the age group races Saturday. It hurt even if you had gears. It was still a lot of fun though, and I was pleased with the effort, and the season in general. Last year I was 3rd, this year 2nd, next year? Still lots of room for improvement. Now that cross season is over, I turn my focus to the Warda Dirty Dozen. Something tells me the competition will be a little stiffer than last year, so I go to work Monday with some hardcore caveman workouts. A little P90X anyone?

Non-bike related, invitations have been sent out for the wedding. Colleen and I have setup a separate website for more info, check it out if you like:

Keep fighting the good fight, but remember, winning isn’t everything. Staying fit, eating well, and having fun are.
