The Drag of Racing

April 3, 2012: End of Training Season is near. SO NEAR!

So there I stand.

Its 2:30 in the afternoon and I have a decision to make.

I stand in my room looking and weighing the options

Option 1:

Take bike uniform gathered the night before, wear it with pride and truck through another workout in preparation of Team CF: Season 3 Style


Option 2:

Laying just underneath the spandex argyle is a beautiful, snug, and inviting bed. Equip with everything a good afternoon nap requires; A pillow, a light blanket and a horizontal surface. (I don’t ask for much) (In fact most times I nap in my truck between the comings and goings of life) BUT TODAY! TODAY! I have options! AND THIS OPTION INCLUDES A PILLOW!

Still. I stare.

I prefer to exercise in the morning when the sun is rising and the air is crisp. But, I've been spending that time at my internship with a radio morning show on the local country station. ( You can listen in on 94.7 WDSD Sky Phillips and the Wake Up Crew! {You can also listen on the iHeartRadio app} 5am – 10am Monday- Friday!) But I digress.

the point is...

I've been up since 3am. And noone would notice if I skipped a day!!!
At one point I considered an early morning (2am) bike ride, I realized that I would be suiting up when the bars were closing. NO GO.

There I stand. Pondering and staring...

I wouldn’t even have to move the pile of clothes. I could just crawl under the blankets and shut my eyes. I am sure I would kick the clothes off my bed in a fit of wonderful REM cycle glory!

But Alas. I have bigger goals. Goals that require daily tending.  And you know what they say…
“You don’t get to the Olympics by napping”

They don’t actually say that. I think I’m the only one who says that. And I’m not actually going to the Olympics...yet...

Nonetheless, Spandex it is!

I am all about the pursuit of happiness and this, my friend, is my pursuit!

A good friend always says
“I’ll sleep when I’m dead”`

 I’ll just sleep tonight....probably starting at 6pm.

Wish me luck!
