IT'S KINDA SAD WHEN YOU THINK ABOUT IT. For every one person that signs up for a race, there are thousands of riders who don't sign up. I think I know why...
... because they know.
What do they know?
A lot of things...
- their abilities
- their schedules
... which they claim precludes their participation.
The truth is...
... racing is hard.
But, they know the real challenge isn't their desire, ability or schedule.
In fact, signing up is the easy part...
... finishing is what scares the shift out of them.
We are different,
completing what we start,
seeing it all the way through...
- warming up
- jockeying for position
- and pushing hard till we cross the line.
... we are finishers.
I was going to leave it there, however it's worth asking the question...
... How can we encourage more people to have an A race?
