Solitude Full Throttle Series: Race #1

Yeah! The Solitude Series rocks. Seriously, come out next Tuesday and try it. I'd be willing to bet you'll get hooked. Speaking of which, what is it about racing that keeps you coming back for more? In all honesty racing is painful. Tonight I was dying on the climbs, especially the section of narrow, rocky singletrack that criss-crossed through the ski run. Dang, that stuff hurt! Yet, when the race was over I almost immediately started thinking about next week and what I need to do differently. The course doesn't really suit me with the long, technical climb and rocky, loose, narrow, twisty downhill, but for a training race it couldn't be better. It directly addresses my weaknesses and thus provides the perfect opportunity for improvement. My time tonight was 1:02. Look for that to improve each week.

I never thought of it that way, address my weaknesses. Maybe I should try it again. When you fall off the horse....and all that. Besides, my fat ass is on the flyer.
