Based on the fact that I have never followed an actual training schedule it would be a stretch to say I have ever taken races that seriously. One might think the natural progression would be to adopt an actual training plan and get a little more serious. Nope. I'm going to go the other way. From here on races are about fun. Sure, I have an Ironman this November and I want to do well, but if I don't, oh well. My first race in awhile is this weekend. A short sprint distance race. I am going to try and go fast, but really, who cares! I will never be a pro. This is supposed to be a hobby, why should I take it that seriously? So the motto now is go out, race hard, have fun, and show me the beer tent.
