I've started thinking about which races to do, where we want to travel this year and trying to find the money to make it all work. I am getting excited about the year.
Maybe I've been thinking about it too much. You know the dreams you have where you can't run, or you run in slow motion and it takes every bit of effort you have? I had a dream last night that we started a race, hit this long singletrack climb, my front shifter pod bolt broke, this slow motion thing set in and I was dropped. Then two of us kept getting lost due to horrible course markings on a race course that not only went through a large venue of small shops, but actually went through the shops and restaurants which were full of people who didn't know there was a race going on. After the millionth wrong turn I remember going down one of the gift shop hallways and dead-ending at the bathrooms. To top it all off I forgot to remove my winter jacket and was carrying a hydration pack and two-way radio, all of which I had meant to take off before the race. Anyone care to analyze this?
