Firstly, I fought cancer last year and decided to return to racing in August 2018. Trainer Road brought me back to fitness and racing (as did my oncologist). Secondly, I got better all season long. Went from getting dropped at my first race of the year to 2 top 5’s at my last 2 races. Granted, it was cat. 4 races (I used to be a cat. 1) but, hey; I’m a middle aged dude with cancer.
Super happy with how it went. Only problem is that there weren’t more races to do.
Recently moved to Phoenix, AZ and racing is over here until fall with 'cross. Road racing resumes December or January. You can bet I’ll be back.
I’ve been off for about 10 days and have been enjoying slacking on training. I’ve been lifting and roller skiing and staying mildly fit. I start training again on 8/19 and am looking forward to it.
Sipping margaritas tonight and pondering an hour or 2 ride tomorrow. Keeping it casual.
Thanks TR guys, and community!
