Why is it that when you are doing it you think it sucks and hurts but when you are finished, you thought it was fun?
Such is the case with Cyclocross racing. While racing, I often wonder, "why am I doing this instead of taking a break from the bike like I usually do? This hurts so badly and I'm not even close to winning the race". Well, the short answer is, I like it and it's fun.
I like the people who come out to watch the race and cheer the racers on. I like the challenges Cross provides me and, most of all, I like the people I have met and gotten to know better because of Cross racing.
After my body stops hurting from this weekend's races, I will be excited for next weekend's race!
