Just like in training, in life we have limiters. These limiters eventually lead to stress that hinders our forward progress. I know what my limiters are on the bike, but currently, what is it about life in general that is holding me back??
So, I figured out what is stressing me, made a mental list and started working on it:
-my yard floods when it rains- poor drainage. Solution: I ordered some fill dirt.
-the addition project had some minor hitches. Solution: take a deep breathe and be patient.
-My new frame needs just the right components but added up not affordable right now. Solution: strip some old parts off of the old bike.
Cool, now that that is taken care of, why am I here, what am I doing, why do I race my bike? For me? Yes, but not only for me...
For World Bicycle Relief, to get the word out about " The Power of Bicycles", and Siren Bicycles, to spread the word about a great hand built bike company. And not just any old company, one whose owner, Brendan Collier, is taking a risk not only to sponsor me, but to sponsor the entire WBR/Siren team!!!
So for her:

I ride, to raise awareness, to help my brothers and sisters around the world!!! Don't loose perspective!!!
Have a great day.
