I HAVE THIS CONSTANT CURIOSITY ABOUT MY FELLOW RACERS, pretty much anybody I meet... and it goes like this...
When's your next big race?
Am I asking because I'm nosy? Is it that I'm trying to find a training partner? Or, perhaps figure out if we're going to be battling it out?
I'm just generally curious about what is driving them... and I'm always on the lookout for a new epic race.
Plus... I've found people with big challenges on the horizon are the people I relate to the most, they're de facto PEDALposse.
My friends at TBD Racing have one big race a year, and they all train for it together. LoToJa. A 200 mile blast from Utah to Wyoming.
My friend Tommy has done Leadville 10 years in a row.
My friend Chad loves to go to Sea Otter.
The big event is one of the things I believe in... not as a deity, but as part of the secret to lifelong fitness.
There are two others: a weekly discipline and being an athlete.
I'm going to dive into all 3 of these in next month's Campfire Stories - the printed on real paper monthly letter I send to the PEDALposse along with a special gift.
If you're into that sorta thing...
