There is a magic place around Colorado. Over the years, I have not had a chance to discover this special place. I've been too busy, traveling too much, or too absorbed in whatever I had been up to. But this winter and early spring, I have had a chance to find and enjoy this magic place. This magic place is called "home", and it's really wonderful.
This "home" place has cool things to do:
-ski (nordic and alpine)
-ride bikes (road, cross, mtn, singlespeed and geared)
-other (pilates, work at SG and ski coaching)
-race (nordic, bikes)
-eat at yummy places
-fun coffee shops to visit
This "home" place has cool people to do the cool things with:
-random fun people
Mostly, this "home" place makes me happy. Yes, I started to panic when it seemed everyone was racing or doing things I am usually doing this time of year but then I realized at this magic place called "home" I can do all those things too...AND be happy while doing it. So come late August or September when everyone is tired and burned out, I will be fresh and happy due to being home so much.
It's easy to lose the love of the sport when you have to do it all the time, and you are away from your loved ones, but when you get to step away a bit, you realize how awesome cycling and bike racing is. I'm excited to race, but mostly, I am happy to be home and get fired up.
