What happened!

All my motivation just fell off of a cliff, in the early race season.  I haven't ridden but 4 times in the last 3 weeks or so.  I'm not sure what happened, but the bottom just fell out.  I think I just needed a break from such focus on all things cycling.  I admittedly get pretty intense about things, and I guess I just needed a big correction.

I'm riding home from work today, and riding back to work in the morning.  I'll be dressed out in my full team kit with my race bike this afternoon, so I'm sure I'll get some looks as I leave the building.  Oh well.  My building is loaded with fat, middle-aged smokers, so I'm not too concerned with what they think.

Yea, that was a bit mean, I suppose.  I must need to ride or something.


  1. Chris, we need you back! Don't join the dark side.

    I have a homework assignment for you. Go out and ride your bike hard, real hard, but do it in khaki shorts and a hawaiian shirt. Then come home and drink chocolate milk. Then repeate the next day.

    You need to get back to the pure and simple joy of riding a bike. Khaki shorts and Hawaiian shirts will get you there.

    God speed.

  2. Don't you worry, buttercup. I'm getting back on the horse in a few hours. Hell, I should just quit my job and ride. If I could find someone to pay me about $15/mi, it'd be a done deal.
